National Philanthropy: Breast Cancer Awareness, Susan G. Komen for the Cure

Philanthropy Background

This year, about 192,370 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed in American women. Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in women in America. Early detection and prompt treatment can significantly reduce the suffering and deaths caused by this disease. alpha Kappa Delta Phi, the largest nationwide Asian-American interest sorority, proudly promotes their National Philanthropy - Breast Cancer Awareness, a project which is dedicated to increasing public knowledge about the early detection of breast cancer.The mission of alpha Kappa Delta Phi's Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign is three-fold:

-To raise funds on a national level to contribute to a non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating breast cancer

-To dedicate at least one Service Event per chapter/colony to Breast Cancer Awareness in October (National Breast Cancer Awareness Month)

-To develop a comprehensive page on our national website that provides links to breast cancer resources

alpha Kappa Delta Phi has raised awareness about breast cancer and early detection since its campaign's inception in 1998. In 2006, the sorority raised over $30,000 as a national organization for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Nearly 100% of its chapters participate and volunteer in Race for the Cure events around the nation. In addition, they host Breast Cancer Awareness banquets, information sessions, workshops, and discussion groups. In 2008, the sorority raised and donated over $35,000 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Throughout the rest of the year, sisters from chapters around the country continue to increase campus and community awareness to the dangers of breast cancer.
