Alpha Phi was the first sorority to form its own Foundation in 1956. The Alpha Phi Foundation has made women’s cardiac care a priority in the lives of many young women. Today, research into the diagnosis and treatment of women's heart disease is still the primary interest of the Alpha Phi Foundation. Alpha Phi Foundation's donors also support vital programs, including: unrivaled leadership training, scholarships, and Forget Me Not funding for sisters facing crisis. Alpha Phis are proud to join with our donors to change the lives of Alpha Phi women and women everywhere.
The Gamma Eta chapter is proud to support the Foundation by raising funds through our annual Red Dress Gala held in the fall during Family Weekend. Also in the fall, we hold our annual Pancake Phi’st, where members of the UNT community come to the Alpha Phi House for unlimited pancakes and to raise money for the Alpha Phi Foundation. In the spring, we hold a Go Red Week on-campus raising awareness about cardiac health. During Go Red Week, we also host the very popular Mr. Heartthrob Competition during which fraternity men compete in various activities throughout the week, including the final Mr. Heartthrob pageant when we crown the year's Mr. Heartthrob. We end Go Red Week with our always popular Taco Phi'st. Like Pancake Phi’st, at Taco Phi'st we invite members of the UNT community to come to the Alpha Phi House to enjoy unlimited tacos and to raise money for the Alpha Phi Foundation.
Our chapter also recognizes the responsibility and importance of contributing to the community and to other campus organizations’ philanthropies. As a chapter we participate in service projects throughout the year such as volunteering with the North Texas Food Bank, WFAA’s Santa’s Helpers, and Habitat for Humanity.
