Delta Kappa's philanthropy is Autism Speaks.
As the world's largest autism advocacy organization, Autism Speaks is dedicated to increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders, to funding research into the causes, prevention and treatments for autism, and to advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.
As a chapter, we host various activities such as Xi Man, Football Frenxi, a "Mac and Cheese with the Xi's" macaroni and cheese bar, and a ceremony for Light it up Blue on world Autism Awareness Day. All proceeds from our fundraising events go to Autism Speaks.
With 1 in 68 children diagnosed with autism and no known cure, Alpha Xi Delta is committed to improving the lives of children and families affected by autism. We hope our fundraising and awareness efforts can help put one more piece of the autism puzzle in place.
