chapter philanthropy

Nationwide, the Alpha Chi Omega philanthropy is domestic violence awareness. Here at Texas, we partner up with The SAFE Alliance, a center for battered women and children. They commit themselves to preventing domestic violence, sexual assault and breaking the cycle of violence in the Austin community. They offer a comprehensive and compassionate selection of services, providing support and resources for survivors to create independent lives free of violence for themselves and their families. Their ultimate goal is to create a community that is full of peace and safety for all. SAFE is ending sexual and domestic violence through safety, healing, prevention and social change. We’ve worked very hard to be named The SAFE Alliance's number one outside contributor.

5k for DVA

Alpha Chi Couture is an annual fashion show and silent auction that Alpha Chi Omega puts on to fight against domestic violence. This year, the fashion show was located at the Palmer Events Center near UT campus. Our annual show this past spring rose over $108,000 in one night for SAFE. Each year, Alpha Chi Omega continues to donate thousands in funding to support the fight against domestic violence. Sponsorships and donations from businesses around the Austin area generously contribute to our silent auction helping us make our philanthropic event a huge success.

In order to include all of Greek life, we recruit models from the other UT sororities, fraternities, and UT athletes. In past years, our models have strutted down the runway in collections donated by Free People Movement, Aviator Nation, Sherri Hill, and many others.

Every Spring we invite the greek community to come on over to our house where we hold an “all you can eat” pizza buffet. This year we had pizza donated from Ropollo's, Via 313,  Marco's, and many other local favorites. All of the money we make from admission to our buffet goes directly to SAFE. Nothing beats fresh pizza, friends, and philanthropy.

This past fall we hosted our first annual 5k for DVA during our AXO parent's weekend! With 217 people registered to race, we raised around $8,000 for SAFE. It was so fun getting to walk & run with friends & family throughout our beautiful campus all for a great cause!
