2019 GivingTuesday

This campaign ended on December 04, 2019, but you can still make a gift to Delta Phi Epsilon by clicking here!

GivingTuesday is the largest annual day of giving. As you plan your charitable giving for the end of the year. I hope that Delta Phi Epsilon is on your list. The support of our alum and their friends and family helps keep the organization thriving.

Delta Phi Epsilon has embarked on a journey to ensure another 100 years of success.  By making a donation on GivingTuesday, you are participating in advancement of the organization. From innovative wellness initiatives to preparing our members to be active citizens through advocating for rights of all people. Our hope is to enrich the minds, bodies and souls of our members and develop extraordinary women who accomplish extraordinary things.

This year, our goal is to raise $50,000 in 24 hours. We need your help! By donating to the Delta Phi Epsilon Educational Foundation, you are investing in the women leaders of tomorrow.

DPhiE believes in the founding values of Justice, Sisterhood and Love. We Believe in DPhiE... Do you? 


General Fund –  Through the education foundation’s general fund, we are able to provide resources and funding to support opportunities ranging from scholarships, education opportunities, leadership seminars, and everything in between.  With these funds we promote and enhance the opportunities our membership has to utilize their DPhiE experience towards building success outside the classroom. In short, we are investing in the women leaders of tomorrow.

Sorority Leadership Programming – Delta Phi Epsilon is dedicated to providing intense and impactful leadership programs for all members including:

  • Engage U – Engage U is a regional intensive operations training that provides resources and workshops for sisters and volunteers. With locations changing each academic semester, we are able to reach over 800 attendees annually.
  • Alumnae Leadership Academy – The Alumnae Leadership Academy (ALA) is a program where local alumnae associations self-identify and nominate their own members to attend a weekend of elevated leadership skills training.
  • International Leadership Forum – Previously known as Convention, the International Leadership Forum (ILF) focuses on providing attendees with renowned, mission-driven programming focused solely on becoming your best self.
  • International Leadership Consultant Program – International Leadership Consultants (ILCs) are recent college graduates hired by IHQ to work directly with chapter members, leadership teams, advisers, local alumnae and university professionals to identify areas of potential improvement and address specific situations. They serve as DPhiE brand ambassadors and official representatives of IHQ. The ILC program will also expose these consultants to a variety of professional experiences.

The Harriette Hirsch Sisterhood Fund – This scholarship helps give financial support to sisters during time of family financial crisis and allows them to continue their education.

Madeleine Claire McNulty Memorial Scholarship Fund - Awarded for the first time in 2019, The Madeleine Claire McNulty Scholarship, named in commemoration of the daughter of Past International President Dawn Barta McNulty- Phi Sigma Chapter at Northern Illinois University- was created to support a sorority member who has overcome a medical, personal or family difficulty. Madeleine was a diligent student, passionate dancer and Special Olympics gold medalist. She embodied our founding values of Justice, Sisterhood and Love.

Having battled a lifelong seizure disorder, Madeleine lost her battle with epilepsy early last year. The McNulty family has designated the Educational Foundation to receive donations in memory of their beloved daughter and has endowed this scholarship.

Toby Tamarkin Scholarship Fund – In honor of Sigma chapter alumnae and dedicated volunteer Dr. Toby Tamarkin, this scholarship is awarded yearly to members who mirror the qualifications of Toby herself. Applicants must be studying for a career in education, must have a job to help them attain their goal, and graduate applicants must be involved in at least one organization in their field. This scholarship was awarded for the first time in 2017.
