Each year, our chapter participates in multiple philanthropy events to help support our two national philanthropies: the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation and the National Domestic Violence Hotline. Below is a list of some of the events we hold annually. We hope you will join us in supporting these important causes!

-Fund domestic violence awareness and prevention initiatives, including our national Make a Stand Day campaign
What are the philanthropy events that Alpha Chi Omega participates in?
One of Alpha Chi Omega’s main philanthropy events is our oxyglow 5k. This is a glow in the dark 5k event that takes place in the fall semester. We have a lot of fun with this event and it is a great way to raise money for our philanthropy, which is domestic violence awareness. We also participate in a number of other events throughout the year to raise money and awareness for domestic violence, including dodgeball tournaments, bake sales, car washes, and more.
How can I get involved with Alpha Chi Omega’s philanthropy events?
At Alpha Chi Omega, we are continually working to support our national philanthropy, Domestic Violence Awareness. We have many different events throughout the year to help raise money and awareness for the cause. Here are some ways you can get involved:
-Attend one of our awareness and education events. Examples include domestic violence simulators, guest speakers, and workshops on healthy relationships.
-Participate in our Denim Day fundraiser. On Denim Day, we collect donations of new or gently used jeans, which are then sold in our online store. All proceeds go to support Alpha Chi Omega’s Foundation and its work to end domestic violence.
-Make a donation to our philanthropy fund. Your donation will go directly to the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation and its programs to support survivors of domestic violence.
Overall, philanthropy is a great way to get involved on campus and in the local community. It is also a great way to meet new people and have fun while doing good. Alpha Chi Omega’s philanthropy events are a great way to do all of those things. If you are looking for a way to get involved, we encourage you to check out our next event!
