First, be sure to mark your calendar for April 10 – you don’t want to miss the fun of this year’s campaign.
1. Choose where you want to donate.
This year, you’ll have the opportunity to direct your donation to one of four Alpha Chi Omega programs and funds: Leadership Academy, Women & Wisdom, Social Excellence Training and, if you’re unsure where you’d like to give, we suggest the Real. Strong. Women.® Fund. When you give to the Real. Strong. Women. Fund, your dollars go toward the greatest need of our sisterhood, which includes the above programs, scholarships and more!
2. Make your donation.
Once you decide what you’d like to support, it’s time to make your gift. Day of Giving will launch at 6 a.m. EST on April 10 and will continue for 1 day, 8 hours and 85 minutes, ending at 3:25 p.m. EDT on April 11. Visit the Day of Giving page and use the “Give Now” button on each project page to make your donation.
3. Share your donor number.
After making your donation, you’ll receive an email from a Foundation staff member with your individual donor number. Your donor number is assigned in the order your gift comes in (i.e., if you’re the 150th person to make a gift, you’ll receive donor number 150). Once you receive your number, update your profile picture on Facebook with your donor number graphic. We love seeing everyone’s photo change as the day goes on. It truly creates an atmosphere of empowered women empowering women. #AXOempower
4. Make an impact.
By giving to Day of Giving you’re creating opportunities for Alpha Chi Omega to remain a place for real, strong women. Not only do you help provide programs to our collegiate and alumnae members, but you also help keep the cost of membership down by funding areas of the Real. Strong. Women. Experience that are educational and philanthropic. Want to see exactly how we’re using your dollars? Check out last year’s Impact Report here!
Can’t wait until April 10? Join our Day of Giving group on Facebook. We’ll be sharing campaign updates, hosting fun challenges and doing what we do best, celebrating the real, strong women of Alpha Chi Omega!
