One of the founding principles of Alpha Omicron Pi is to be of service to others - to bring into the world around us a spirit of love, not for self-glory, but as an opportunity to give something back to our communities. Alpha Omicron Pi’s international philanthropy supports arthritis, juvenile arthritis, and related diseases. Arthritis Research was chosen because it’s the nation's leading cause of disability. Since adopting Arthritis Research as its international philanthropy in 1967, Alpha Omicron Pi has raised millions of dollars for grants and research.
The Beta Gamma Chapter of Alpha Omicron Pi holds two events each school year to raise money and awareness for the Arthritis Foundation. Each fall we hold our annual "Strike Out Arthritis" dodge ball tournament and in the spring we host a fashion show, "Catwalk for a Cure.”
Apart from these main events, the ladies of Beta Gamma volunteer with a variety of organizations such as the Ronald McDonald House, the Humane Society, and Habitat for Humanity; as well as participate in various non-Greek and Greek Community activities and organization's philanthropy events on and off campus.
