Alpha Delta Pi Raises Record Amount for Ronald McDonald House Charities
ATLANTA (October 11, 2019) – As Alpha Delta Pi celebrates 40 years as a national philanthropic partner with Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), we are excited to announce that our collegiate chapters and alumnae associations have raised a combined total of $1,411,485 during the 2018-2019 school year to benefit RMHC. Throughout our 40-year history, we have raised more than $15,400,000 in support of RMHC.
In addition to supporting 140 RMHCs throughout the US & Canada this year, more than $111,000 was given to the newly established Ronald McDonald House Charities Endowment at the Alpha Delta Pi Foundation. This Endowment allows us to extend our reach to help RMHCs that may not have a local Alpha Delta Pi chapter or alumnae association nearby or RMHCs that are expanding.
An additional $17,914 was raised for other charities beyond RMHC, including Camp Rainbow, Circle of Sisterhood, Max Gruver Foundation, and The Gentry House.
