Questions and Answers

Below you will find answers to many common questions about We Believe. We Give. 2024.

What is We Believe. We Give.?

We Believe. We Give. is the Alpha Delta Pi Foundation's annual day of giving. This 27-hour campaign is an international effort to inspire undergraduate and alumnae members, as well as parents and friends of Alpha Delta Pi to support our efforts to Educate. Lead. and Serve. with a gift of any size, to any area of focus.

When is it?

We begin on Founders' Day: May 15 beginning at 9 a.m. ET, ending 27 hours later at Noon ET on May 16. When the Day of Giving goes live, there will be a "Give Now" button that appears at the top of the website.

Where is my gift most needed?

Our area of greatest need is the Annual Fund, which allows us to allocate resources wherever the need is greatest, including to:

- support ongoing programs to combat sexual assault and hazing

- provide training and speakers for virtual and in-person leadership education

- provide opportunities for mental wellness and alcohol risk reduction programs

- enhance the member experience

Your gift to the Annual Fund on the Day of Giving will help us continue to offer these amazing resources, as well as be prepared for new opportunities to support our Alpha Delta Pi sisters throughout the year.

Can I support my chapter?

Yes! There are different ways to support your chapter:

Directly - if they have a scholarship, leadership fund, or educational housing fund established (not all chapters have a chapter-specific fund established yet)

Indirectly - through many areas of focus that support ALL chapters, such as programs to prevent sexual assault and hazing, programs to support mental wellness, and emergency grants for undergraduate or alumnae members in financial distress; also, gifts to the Annual Fund (our area of greatest need) benefit ALL members by allowing us to allocate resources where they are most needed

I'm a undergraduate member. How can I help?

We Believe. We Give. is a day for ALL Alpha Delta Pi sisters to be inspired. Here are some ways that you can get involved:

1. Serve as a Day of Giving Ambassador - help us reach your chapter sisters, alumnae, parents, and friends to encourage their support

2. Join the 1851 Violet Circle (our undergraduate giving society) if you haven't already

3. Make a gift - gifts both small and large help Educate. Lead. and Serve. our sisterhood

Will my gift count towards my annual giving recognition in The Adelphean and on the Foundation's website?

Yes. Your gift through Day of Giving will apply to your recognition in the Foundation's Honor Roll of Donors for the 2023-2024 giving year. See our Annual and Lifetime Giving Clubs on our website. Our giving year is August 1st through July 31st. Check out your Giving History on Pride Online to see your total contributions and giving club level for this giving year.


What about Ronald McDonald House Charities?

Yes, we have a way to support Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) through We Believe. We Give. too! Did you know that our chapters and alumnae associations support around 40% of RMHC's facilities? Our growing RMHC Endowment at the Alpha Delta Pi Foundation will be a permanent endowment that allows ADPi to expand our support of RMHC across the globe, even to those houses that do not have a chapter or alumnae association nearby.

Is my gift tax-deductible?

Yes! The Alpha Delta Pi Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, so your gifts are tax-deductible. Please retain your email receipt for tax purposes.

Can I make a monthly gift?

Yes. Please select "recurring" when you submit your donation. HOWEVER - please note that a recurring gift cannot be paired with "add another gift to your donation." Please make your recurring gift separately to ensure it continues to be processed each month going forward. All recurring gifts set up on Day of Giving will count as a pledge towards our Day of Giving totals up to one year - i.e. if you set up a monthly gift of $25 for the next year, we will count your $300 pledge towards our totals for the day. If you have further questions, please contact us at

Are Violets for My Sisters included in Day of Giving this year?

If you would like to participate in Violets for My Sisters, please make your gift at (not here). The Foundation staff will administratively enter Violets for My Sisters gifts during Day of Giving so they count towards our Day of Giving totals. Notifications will be sent via email to all honorees.

Will I receive a receipt?

Absolutely! After you make your gift, you will receive a confirmation email that can be used for tax purposes.

My employer offers a gift matching program. Are gifts on the Day of Giving eligible?

Definitely! You will receive an email confirmation of your gift that can be used for tax and gift matching purposes. Not sure if your company offers a gift matching program? Check on our website.
