Why Donate to ADPS?

Donations to the Alpha Delta Phi Society support, sustain, and grow our chapters and affiliates.

Your donation to the Alpha Delta Phi Society supports your siblings in becoming leaders, building communities, and strengthening an ongoing commitment to education beyond the classroom. Additionally, your donation enables the founding of new chapters, encourages inter-collegiate friendships, and reinforces our life-long commitment to one another through the support of Regional Graduate Organizations.  

Why Donate to SELEF?

Donations to the Chamberlain Fund of the Samuel Eells Literary and Educational Foundation (SELEF) support literary and educational programming.

The SELEF Foundation supports an Annual Literary Competition and provides funding for scholarships and leadership training. 

As a 501(c)(7) social organization, donations to the Alpha Delta Phi Society are not tax deductible.
