Each year during the month of October, the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation celebrates Founders’ Day Challenge, a month-long fundraising campaign supporting the Real. Strong. Women.® Fund.
This year, the Foundation invites you to honor our Founders with a gift to the campaign! When you give, you’re helping empower sisters to embrace their ambitions and reach their fullest potential just like our Founders did many years ago.
Here are five things you should know about #AXOFDC.
- Founders’ Day Challenge runs the full month of October.
This year, Founders’ Day Challenge launches on October 1 and ends on October 31, which means you’ll have plenty of time to participate in this year’s challenge! While you’re marking your calendar, be sure to remember Domestic Violence Awareness Month (October 1-31) and Founders’ Day (October 15).
- Serving as a campaign ambassador is a great way to give back!
Being a campaign ambassador is a lot of fun! This short-term volunteer role runs September 29 – October 31 and is open to all Alpha Chi Omegas. In this role, you’ll work to promote fundraising efforts, make an impact on our sisterhood and help us expand our reach, engaging new sisters in this fun campaign. Sign up here by September 27!
- When you give, you’re making a big impact on our sisterhood.
Your gift during Founders’ Day Challenge supports the Real. Strong. Women. Fund. This is the best way to make a direct impact on our sisters – collegians and alumnae. We’ll use your gift for Foundation-supported programs like Leadership Academy, domestic violence awareness, mental health programming and more.
- We’ll be releasing giving challenges all month long to benefit our sisterhood!
After all, it is Founders’ Day Challenge! During October, the Foundation will release special giving challenges on our Founders’ Day Challenge giving dashboard. You’ll also see a listing of top chapter participation (based on donors/chapter members) and top state participation. Are you up for the challenge?
- The purpose of Founders’ Day Challenge is to honor Alpha Chi Omega’s founding and make an impact.
What better time to give back than during our founding month? Not only are you making an impact today, but you’re also honoring the history of Alpha Chi Omega. Make your gift more meaningful by giving $18.85 to honor our founding year or $145 to recognize each active collegiate chapter!
