Our small, but mighty alumnae association raised more than $25,000 to fully endow our Deen Day Sanders Scholarship Fund through the Alpha Delta Pi Foundation. Named in honor of a sister who has given so much to Alpha Delta Pi and also our community, it’s only fitting that we celebrate and recognize Deen Day Sanders, Beta Sigma Chapter – Mercer University.
Fully endowing this scholarship could not have been possible without our Alpha Delta Pi sisters who encouraged us to keep pushing forward. When Bonnie Neff Pennington, Xi Chapter – Ohio University, the former President of GAAAA along with the 2016 GAAAA Board of Directors decided to commit to this as part of the Alpha Delta Pi Foundation We Believe Capital Campaign, it was not common for an alumnae association, especially one with less than 100 members, to tackle this kind of fundraising challenge.
But we did it.
The Greater Atlanta Alpha Delta Pi Alumnae Association and more than 50 sisters representing 34 different chapters (along with husbands, brothers, employers, and friends) rallied around the cause. It’s because of their collective efforts we are able to give the gift of scholarship to sisters, right here in our community, to help them reach their educational goals.
