Delta Gamma’s national philanthropy is Service for Sight, an organization dedicated to helping those with visual impairments. Through Service for Sight, the Delta Gamma Foundation has funded schools for students with specialized learning needs due to visual impairments. Additionally, the Foundation has funded genetic research, low-vision adaptive devices, tapes, Braille brooks, and other life-enhancing programs.
 
Beta Eta also has had a longstanding relationship with the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (TSBVI), which is located just blocks away from campus. TSBVI is “home” for many students from all across the state. Not only do students live and go to school at TSBVI, they grow as individuals, excel in athletics, and build the necessary skills to go on to college and enter the workforce.
 
Our goal is to touch their lives in a positive way and assist in their social development. In the process, we also grow as individuals, as leaders, and as lifelong members of Delta Gamma.

Contact Kyla Llamas (txdgfoundation@gmail.com) for any questions on Service for Sight.

Anchor Games

Each year, the Beta Eta chapter of Delta Gamma hosts two major charity events, Anchor Splash© and Anchor Slam. Both events are fundraisers for the Delta Gamma Foundation and Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (TSBVI).

 

The goal for these events is to raise awareness of blindness within the Austin community and throughout campus. We work towards raising as much money as possible to donate to the Delta Gamma Foundation and to our local philanthropy, TSBVI, in order to make the biggest impact in our community as possible.

Contact Eva Tirion and Christina Pennell, directors of Anchor Games, for any questions about Anchor Splash©, Anchor Bash, or Anchor Slam.
