Delta Chi’s national philanthropy is the Jimmy V. Foundation for Cancer Research and was started by the late Jim Valvano in 1993. The organization has gone on to raise millions of dollars to support life saving cancer research and our chapter is proud to support it. We perform two chapter-wide philanthropy projects during the year. In the fall, we have a Pig Roast themed tailgate at which we sell plates of pork in order to raise money for Jimmy V. We also donate a large portion of the money we earn working at Cheersport every spring semester.
Our members are strongly encouraged to commit to other philanthropy-based organizations at Georgia Tech. Some notable groups in which we have member participation are GT For the Kids, Relay For Life, and Engineers Without Borders. It is our belief that to form men of character, we must establish a strong commitment to philanthropic work. It is a belief our members work towards every day.
