Our Philanthropy: The Alpha Phi Foundation

Why is our philanthropy important to us?


Red Dress Gala


A major reason our sisters chose to join Greek life is for the opportunity to give back to those in need. Internationally, each Alpha Phi Chapter hosts their own Red Dress Gala each year. These galas raise money and awareness for The Alpha Phi Foundation, which sends proceeds to help in women’s cardiac care. The Red Dress Gala is a black-tie event in which families, friends, and survivors gather together to make a stand for heart health while enjoying each others' company as well as a dinner, entertainment, and a silent auction.

Keep the Beat

Every term at WPI the Iota Omicron Chapter raises awareness about Women's Heart Health with a free campus event called Keep the Beat. We have hosted Yoga, Zumba, Pilates, Circuit Training, Plyometrics, Kickboxing and more to promote healthy living!

Alpha Phifa

In D-term we host Alpha Phifa to raise money for our philanthropies! We play and referee small sized soccer games. We love being active with our sisters and the rest of campus! We also love pairing up with other Greek organizations to raise money for our philanthropies!

 Mac & Phi's 

In A-term we host Mac N' Phis to raise money for our philanthropy! We make and sell bowls of mac n cheese on campus, as well as delivering it to on campus housing and fraternity and sorority houses. We love spending time with our sisters and raising money for our philanthropy at the same time! 

Mr. Heart Throb

In A-term we host Mr. Heartthrob to raise money for our philanthropies! Men from many of the fraternities on campus compete for the title of Mr. Heartthrob through many rounds of beauty pageant style events. This year we raised over $2,000 for our philanthropy!
