Leadership and History

History

 

The Barbara Kinter Kunkel History Education Fund provides support for the widespread dissemination of educational materials and documents for the purposes of history education.

 

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

 

Leadership

 

Leadership and Educational Programs in Alpha Delta Pi are supported by gifts to the Annual Fund, which provides funding for the areas of greatest need within our sisterhood. Your gifts through the Annual Fund help us respond in an ever-changing world to the needs of the organization and our members.

 

The Leadership Consultant Endowment provides support for educational programs, speakers, and workshops delivered to collegiate chapters, as well as for programs of similar character and purpose to the Leadership Consultant program.

 

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.

 

The Mary Esther Hedley Van Akin Leadership Development Fund was established in 1989 to support leadership training and educational programming for collegiate chapters, members, and advisors. It is named in memory of Mary Esther Hedley Van Akin, Alpha Mu—University of Wisconsin, who served Alpha Delta Pi as a national officer for nearly four decades.

 

The Maureen Calloway Carnevale Leadership Fund was established by Maureen Calloway Carnevale, Alpha Zeta—Southern Methodist University, to provide funding for an undergraduate member of Alpha Delta Pi to participate in the Fraternal Government Relations Coalition (FGRC) Capitol Hill visits in Washington, DC.
