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.

“I chose Alpha Delta Pi because I loved how welcoming and amazing the women in this chapter are, but I also love the philanthropy that Alpha Delta Pi supports which is the Ronald McDonald House Charities. The Ronald McDonald House holds a special place in my heart. My younger sister was born with Spina Bifida. She spent time in the hospital just after she was born and also for multiple surgeries throughout the years. My family stayed at the Ronald McDonald house many times.  I remember being there with my dad, eating meals, playing, and doing arts and crafts. I know how important that place has been to our family.  I am so grateful to be a part of Alpha Delta Pi to join other amazing women and to do philanthropy work that is so important to families.” -Wynne Morris, Class of 2023
