Philanthropy

From the time of our founding, Alpha Delta Pi has believed in the importance of giving back to our community. A dedication to philanthropy guides our members to spend time in the service of those who need it most. Our international organization’s commitment to Ronald McDonald House Charities has led to the donation of over $15,000,000 over the course of our partnership. More than 350 Ronald McDonald Houses in 64 countries help keep families with seriously ill or injured children together when they need it most by offering them a comfortable, temporary residence in proximity to a medical facility.

"Love Built It, ADPi Supports It"

The national philanthropy of Alpha Delta Pi is Ronald McDonald House Charities. RMH provides a home away from home for the families of children who are receiving medical care in nearby hospitals. A family who is staying at a Ronald McDonald House never pays for their stay and are welcome as long as they are in need. While staying at RMH all household basics are taken care of. The families are taking care of their loved ones and we take care of them.
The Alpha Beta Chapter of Alpha Delta Pi enjoys spending time at the RMH house on campus. Some of our members favorite things to do are making meals for the families staying at the house as well as hosting events that provide them with the space to relax and take their mind off of the pressures of difficult situations life throws our way sometimes.
