The Gail Hitchcock Endowment for the Digital Archives provides support for the preservation of materials and documents unique to Alpha Delta Pi’s history.




The Adelphean Compass leadership program is one of Alpha Delta Pi’s signature leadership programs designed specifically for women and emphasizes a focus on Leading with Self, Vision, Action, and Relationships. This program is supported by the Annual Fund.


Adelphean Connections is our program for emerging leaders. Incorporating best practices from its predecessor IMPACT Alpha Delta Pi, Adelphean Connections will utilize the StrengthsQuest leadership inventory and the Social Change Model of Leadership Development to provide members with an opportunity for individual, chapter, and community growth. This program is supported by the Annual Fund.


Our Leadership Consultants travel around the U.S. and Canada each year to offer training for collegiate chapter members, advisors, house corporations and local alumnae in the areas of education, leadership development, scholarship, and philanthropy. The Leadership Consultant Endowment ensures this very important program continues to thrive and our sisters continue to uphold the highest ideals and standards for our sisterhood.


Values based organizations, such as Alpha Delta Pi, can greatly benefit from research-based curriculum focusing on issues relevant to our members and the implementation of special programs. With your support, we can continue to create experiences that make the member experience even better. The aim of Social Issues Fund is to support programming that improves the safety and well-being of our members while developing their skills to navigate a global world. Areas of focus include sexual assault prevention, mental health, inclusion, hazing prevention and intervention, as well as alcohol and other drug abuse prevention.


Each summer, a group of undergraduate members arrive at Executive Office to spend six weeks fully immersed in our sisterhood, gaining experience in everything from event planning, social media, to how a non-profit works. The Nationwide Intern Endowment covers educational expenses and training related to this extremely worthwhile program.


The Sally Beggs Thomas Intern Education Fund was established in 2017 in celebration of the retirement of Sally Beggs Thomas, Beta Sigma—Mercer University, who spent more than two decades as a volunteer and staff member for Alpha Delta Pi. This fund will provide the opportunity for Executive Office interns to learn firsthand about the history of Alpha Delta Pi through their travel to Macon, Georgia and other historic monuments important to our place in history.
