National Philanthropy

Delta Zeta's national philanthropies are Speech and Hearing and The Heiser Hearing Institute. The Foundation also makes annual hearing grants to Delta Zeta Alumnae chapters to assist hearing centers, schools and clinics. The Painted Turtle is a camp for chronically and terminally ill children. The Painted Turtle's mission is to provide a year-round, life-changing environment and authentic camp experience for children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses, and Delta Zeta members volunteer at the camp as well as raise money for this philanthropy. This organization was adopted by Delta Zeta as one of our philanthropic causes at the 2006 national convention.

Local Philanthropy

Delta Zeta believes that through service and philanthropy, our members are the ones who benefit the most. Delta Zeta knows the power of women to effect positive change, and has proven it from our earliest volunteer work during World War I to the efforts given today to foster speech and hearing programs. Delta Zeta members take change into their own hands by volunteering wherever they see a need. We grow individually as a result of our service to others.

Delta Zeta Auction

The Delta Zeta Auction is the largest fundraiser for the chapter and a joint project with the Louisville Alumnae Chapter of Delta Zeta. The Beta Gamma Chapter of Delta Zeta would like to thank everyone for their support of our annual auction fundraiser. This year's event was held on April 1st at the Fraizer History Museum. Proceeds from the event will benefit the DZ Foundation, our speech and hearing partnerships, the Miss University of Louisville Scholarship Fund and the Painted Turtle Camp. Thank you for helping us make a difference in our communities!
