DG prides itself in doing volunteer work all throughout the year with the CNIB and other local charities/organizations.
In addition, we host two main events where we have the opportunity to raise money for our own philanthropy;
DG Dash is a ice cream and bake sale event where DG and our friends from the Greek Community purchase sweet treats to support organizations such as the CNIB, Delta Gamma Foundation and our Service for Sight mission. All of the proceeds made throughout the day are directly donated to our philanthropy.
Each year, DG averages 3000$+ in donations.
Anchor Splash ®
Anchor Splash® is hosted by more than 125 Delta Gamma collegiate chapters to raise awareness about visual impairments, while also raising funds for our Foundation. At UBC, Anchor Splash® is one of the biggest philanthropy events on campus and is always a highlight! With every fraternity and sorority involved in this event, it not only makes it successful but fun as well.
The UBC aquatic centre kindly lets us rent their space for this event where teams participate in relay races and synchronized swimming routines. Each of our members contributes to help run this event where in addition to the main event, we also have a 50/50 raffle, bake sale, and many other fun things going on as well!
Anchor Splash® is an amazing opportunity to bring both the greek community and the UBC community together and raise money to help contribute to an important cause.
