UCLA's sororities host interfraternal competitions to raise money for various beneficiaries of their own. Delts are active participants in numerous philanthropic events organized by these sororities. Participating in sorority philanthropies support our inter-Greek relationships, and provide unique opportunities to build new friendships while helping the community. Recently, Delts won Delta Gamma's Anchorman 2016 pageant, Alpha Phi's Mr. Greek 2017, and "Phi Ro Your Boat".
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
At Delta Tau Delta, we believe in giving back. Every quarter our Community Service chairman organizes events to benefit the larger community. Past events have included reading to underprivileged children and participating in a beach cleanup day organized by Heal the Bay in Santa Monica. UCLA Delts consistently participate in campus-wide fundraising events such as Dance Marathon and Relay for Life, recently winning Mr. Relay in 2017. Our fraternity also gives back individually by volunteering as active members of clubs on campus including the Pediatric AIDS Coalition, Colleges Against Cancer, Project Literacy, Mentorship, Message in a Melody and many more. These are just a few of the ways Delts make a difference.
OUR NATIONAL PARTNERSHIP
Delta Tau Delta established its national philanthropic partnership with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) in 2012. Since the partnership began, Delta Tau Delta chapters have raised more than $1 million for type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. UCLA Delta Tau Delta proudly created the “Delt VMA's” which raises funds and awareness for T1D. The event consists of sororities making lip-synching videos supporting JDRF. They are judged based on specific criteria to win Video of the Year.
Recently, UCLA Delts created "The Price is Delt", a game show competition where sororities compete by answering Westwood-themed questions. This event also benefits JDRF. Additionally, the brothers are proud to volunteer every fall at the Rose Bowl for JDRF's One Walk Los Angeles. Through our continued support of JDRF, we help accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications.
