anchor splash, service for sight, & more
Our dedicated members and friends make the mission of the Delta Gamma Foundation, "Do Good", possible. Volunteer service is at the heart of Delta Gamma's work. Delta Gamma generously donates more than 90,000 volunteer hours each year to a variety of service organizations, particularly emphasizing service to our own philanthropy - Service for Sight, Joining Forces, and Guide Dogs for the Blind.
Our chapter is privileged to have the Delta Gamma-founded Blind Children's Center located right here in Los Angeles as our main, local beneficiary. Because we are so close, our chapter is able to visit this special school regularly. DGs frequent the BCC during recess, attend fundraisers, and decorate holiday cards for the visually impaired children.
Our other beneficiaries include Guide Dogs for the Blind, which helps to train guide dogs and match them to those in need at no cost, as well as Joining Forces, which aids war veterans.
Our annual philanthropy, Anchor Splash, raises money for Service for Sight. We invite students and Greek Chapters from all across UCLA. Groups come together for relay races, guide dogs, and a schronized swimming competition. Our commitment to helping those who struggle with vision impairment also extends to the elderly and to assisting the UCLA Jules Stein Institute with sight research. Please contact with any questions.
This year our chapter raised an incredible $36,380.43 for Service for Sight and other local Los Angeles beneficiaries!
We could not have achieved this without our wonderful

Dance Marathon, Relay for Life & other campus philanthropies...
Every year, UCLA Delta Gamma participates in campus wide philanthropies! We love to show our school spirit and help other clubs, fraternities and sororities fundraise for their philanthropic causes. For many Delta Gammas, Dance Marathon is the highlight of the year. Each year, Delta Gamma is one of the highest fundraising teams for Dance Marathon! The women of Delta Gamma look to each other for support and encouragement during this 26-hour long marathon of straight dancing.
