Alpha Xi Delta’s Philanthropic Focus






The Kindly Hearts Initiative

The Kindly Hearts Initiative serves as the umbrella to our national philanthropic focus of supporting children and teens experiencing foster care or homelessness. Alpha Xi Deltas across the country support two Key Impact Organizations, FosterClub and StandUp for Kids, making a national and regional difference under the umbrella of our focus.

Letters of Love

All Alpha Xi Delta chapters and alumnae associations participate in Letters of Love, Alpha Xi Delta’s national letter writing fundraising campaign. Held annually during the month of November this campaign benefits Alpha Xi Delta’s two Key Impact Organizations, StandUp for Kids and FosterClub.


Our Chapter's Impact:


Fuzzie Football: Brenda M. Hugg is the heart and sunshine behind Fuzzie Football. As a new member, Brenda passed away in 2000. Every year we get together with her family and friends to celebrate her beautiful life and legacy as an Alpha Xi Delta. In her honor, the Brenda M. Hugg Scholarship was established to recognize an outstanding new member. The recipient is given the award by Mr. and Mrs. Hugg, and is the best part of the day! Fuzzie Football is a flag football tournament, and is Gamma Zeta's pride and joy! The day is full of smiles, pictures, food, music and reminiscing with old and new sisters. Other Greeks come support, as well as everyone's family members! It is a great day to be an Alpha Xi, and one of our favorite times of the year! 

Dodgeball Tournament: In February 2022, Gamma Zeta hosted our first ever Dodgeball Tournament. We had all of our friends and family come together and create teams. After the tournament we had snacks, raffles, and fun. This event was full of fun, laughter, and bonding while we gathered together to support Our House, Ypsilanti.
