Alpha Chi Omega’s national philanthropy is domestic violence awareness.
Alpha Chi Omega is dedicated to raising awareness and educating others about domestic violence and sexual assault awareness and prevention. We stand behind these issues that affect people, and primarily women, all over the world. Alpha Chi Omega thinks globally and acts locally to serve individuals and families impacted by these issues through fundraising and gifts of time and talent. Alpha Chi Omega also works to educate its own members, giving them tools to build their own healthy relationships, and to raise awareness of domestic violence and sexual assault by educating others on the impacts of and work being done to end it.
Alpha Chi Omega is looking forward to building partnerships with S.A.F.E Inc. a local shelter that offers assistance for victims of domestic violence and and sexual assault and their children, as well as Family Crisis Services, an organizations that offers service opportunities such as: crisis line, education programs, administrative duties, awareness activities, fundraisers, advocacy and new volunteer recruitment. Founding members will create a signature philanthropy event in which all proceeds go right back to the local community; members will also will have the opportunity to volunteer with local nonprofits to support those affected by domestic violence and sexual assault.
RAINN (RAPE, ABUSE & INCEST NATIONAL NETWORK)
Alpha Chi Omega partners with RAINN, the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization, to amplify and support RAINN’s work. RAINN equips Alpha Chi Omega with resources and materials to raise awareness of sexual violence. Work with RAINN primarily focuses on Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April, and as part of our partnership, Alpha Chi Omega is working with RAINN to create educational webinars for alumnae members.
