Philanthropy

Each semester, our chapter votes to select a new philanthropy for the upcoming term. For Spring 2021, we have chosen to work with Embrace Delaware.   

 

Their mission statement: 

Embrace Delaware is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that fosters opportunities for community by providing support, education, and connections between those affected by disabilities, their families and the local community.

 

They do this through crucial and celebrated services such as respite nights, after school programs, summer camps, and accessible holiday events.

 

They also deliver assistance with IEP reviews, referrals for other needed services, as well as training for businesses, organizations, schools, and churches.

 

Embrace was founded in Dover, DE in 2011. It began as a small group of church friends helping others, and grew from there. They desired to help disabled children who could not attend typical after school activities, and their families who needed support in a community not well-equipped to provide an accessible environment.

 

Proceeds go towards funding after school/social programs for disabled children and towards community training programs.

 

A note from our financial secretary, who organizes all of the fundraisers we conduct for our philanthropy each semester: 

I am super excited to work with all the sisters and everyone at UD to raise money for such a great organization. Even though so much of the semester is virtual, we plan to have many exciting fundraisers, both online and on Main Street. Check out our Facebook page to stay updated on when our next fundraiser will be for Embrace!

 

Best,

Evelyn
