Letter From Philanthropy Vice President


I am so grateful to be able to share what our philanthropy, Autism Speaks, means to us. Our chapter is lucky enough to be surrounded by a community that provides us with opportunities to experience first-hand the positive impact that our philanthropy causes. Between volunteering at the Autism Academy of South Carolina, cheering on families at the Autism Speaks Walk in Charlotte, or wearing blue to support families with children on the spectrum, we always feel a strong connection to our philanthropy.

Since 2017, our chapter has raised over $55,000 for Autism Speaks. Thinking about this number is such an important reminder of the power that young women have to make a difference in the community. With excitement and energy of being a part of Greek Life, it’s helpful to take a step back and understand that we have the power to positively change the perception and understanding of autism spectrum disorders. 

I couldn't be more thankful that I am surrounded by a sisterhood that inspires me to bring advocacy and support to autism spectrums disorders. My chapter is a constant reminder that there is great progress being made in terms of recognition and acceptance, but there always more that we can do together to help the autism community.
