Philanthropy & Fundraising
As an alumnae chapter, we continue to support Alpha Chi Omega's altruisims.
Alpha Chi Omega’s history is rooted in generosity, compassion and commitment to our sisters and the greater good.
On top of helping to support the philanthropic causes of our fellow Panhellenic organizations, members are dedicated to raising awareness and educating others about domestic violence.
The 1992 Alpha Chi Omega National Convention marked the adoption of domestic violence awareness as our national philanthropy. This issue is one we stand behind as something that affects women all over the world. Together, we work to fight against unhealthy relationships and build healthy relationships. Members serve individuals and families impacted by domestic violence through fundraising and gifts of time and talents for shelters and other service-providing organizations. 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 by educating others on the impacts of and work being done to end it.

Locally in Lake County, Iota Lambda Iota continues to support domestic violence awareness by rasing funds and assisting our local shelters with their needs and voluneering our time. We provide support to two local shelters A Safe Place and The Lake County Haven. We are always looking for new ways to donate our time and monitary efforts. If you have new ideas that would impact domestic violence awareness here in Lake County, we would love to hear them!
Upscale Rummage Event - A huge thank you to Upscale Rummage in Libertyville. Their mission of helping others has allowed up to provide help to our philanthropies: A Safe Place, Lake County Haven and the Alpha Chi Foundation. Finally, a huge shout out to all who helped with staffing, and, of course, those who made purchases. With your help we raised over $6000 for our charities.,
