Kristen Olmstead (Oklahoma City)
“Gamma Phi Beta has been my rock for the past four years. The women I met in the house became my role models and best friends, and they have helped me to develop into a woman I am incredibly proud of today. It means the world to me to have my Life Loyal membership sponsored because I can continue growing as a woman and young professional with my sisters by my side as well as connect with sisters across the country who will become my future role models and friends. My sponsor has given me such a special gift that I will cherish forever. I am incredibly thankful to her for her Labor, Loyalty and Love. It is because of her that I can continue to develop all the Core Values of Gamma Phi Beta through my life as a Life Loyal member of Gamma Phi Beta.”
Victoria Pedersen (Nebraska-Lincoln)
“It was an unexpected gift to have my alumnae dues sponsored. It has been very bittersweet to realize my time in college is coming to an end, as well as my time as a collegiate member. This was a reminder that Gamma Phi does not end when we graduate college but continues. I’m so grateful to be a part of a sisterhood that cares not only about collegiate members, but about investing in sisters once they graduate as well. It is a great reminder of the ways we can continue to invest in one another and strengthen our sisterhood as we move into the next stage of life.”
Mallory Tompkins (Christopher Newport)
“It means so much to be able to have my Life Loyal membership sponsored because it means I can be a part of Gamma Phi for life. The connections I have made through G-Phi here at school have meant so much to me and I can't wait to be able to continue making these connections for the rest of my life. I would say thank you to my parents for always supporting me and for always letting me know how proud they are of me and thank you to my sisters for constantly having my back and making sure I know I am loved and supported.”
Caroline Blevins (Oklahoma State)
“Having my Life Loyal membership sponsored is a huge blessing to me as I transition into this new membership stage. I look forward to remaining actively involved throughout my lifetime, and I've said so since day one. This is another step to a life full of Love, Labor, Learning and Loyalty. I am so thankful that Sally Wallace chose to sponsor me and my Life Loyal membership. Gamma Phi Beta gave me so much over my past four years at Oklahoma State University, and this proves that it continues to do so and will for life. I'm looking forward to the next chapter, but I wouldn't be where I am or who I am today without Gamma Phi Beta. I hope to contribute to this organization, and future sisters like others have graciously done for me one day.”
Madeline Payne (Southern Methodist)
“Having my Big Sister sponsor my Life Loyal membership reminds me that this sisterhood doesn’t end at graduation. As I transition from a collegiate member to an alumna, I know that I will always have the love, support and friendship of my amazing sisters. Kayla, thank you for the incredible generosity of your sponsorship! You truly exemplify the values of our sorority, and I am beyond thankful to have you as my Big Sister.”
Alexa Jones (Christopher Newport)
“Having my international alumnae dues sponsored is a reminder of this constant truth: The energy put forth into Gamma Phi is returned 1000x over. Our sisterhood transcends both time and location and this is evident to me through this sponsorship. My sisters in Gamma Phi, even the ones I have yet to meet like my sponsor, have inspired me daily. I am so grateful to have my dues sponsored and hope that one day I can do the same for another graduating senior. Thank you so much for investing in the future of Gamma Phi. The pandemic has been challenging, yet it is the kindness of sisters such as you that have inspired me to overcome. I hope one day I can have as much of an impact on sisters I have not even met as you have had on me.”
Natalie Hirsch (Maryland)
“I am so grateful to have my alumnae dues sponsored and to be a part of an organization with such strong support for its members. Being in Gamma Phi Beta has helped me become a leader, grow in strength and character, and has given me a lifelong sisterhood. Although I will miss my sisters at school, I can't wait to graduate knowing I have the support of alumnae across the world! Thank you, Catherine, for being a wonderful example of Love and Loyalty. I am so appreciative of you starting my lifetime commitment to Gamma Phi Beta after I graduate!”
Catherine King (Maimi-Ohio)
“It means a lot to have my chapter's recruitment advisor sponsor my international alumnae dues. It truly shows the True and Constant connections Gamma Phi Bets instills in us. I got to work with Kate for three years of recruitment as I held different positions including membership vice president and president. It means the world to have her recognize my dedication to this chapter. I would like to thank Kate for not only this sponsorship but her dedication and assistance to the Beta Epsilon Chapter. She’s truly the reason we were able to make it through our two years of COVID recruitment. Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do for our chapter.”
Chloe Higgins (Nebraska-Lincoln)
“Gamma Phi has become one of the dearest interests of my life over the past four years, and I cannot imagine a life after college without continuing engagement with Gamma Phi Beta. This incredibly generous donation means that I can continue being invested in the Sorority that has invested so much in me, the Sorority that has truly changed my life in the best way. To my donor, thank you for equipping women like me to continue living out the values and skills that I have gained throughout my membership in Gamma Phi Beta. Because of you, I am able to continue investing in the Sorority that has invested so much in me.”
Manuela Luque (Boston)
“This is so kind of you! I am so excited to graduate, and this made it even better! I am truly touched by your kindness. It absolutely made my day! I love my chapter; I was even president!”
Leticia Agnes Valle (California-Los Angeles)
“Having my international dues sponsored my first year out of college means a lot to me as it shows that Gamma Phi Beta has recognized my contribution to Alpha Iota these past years. As financial vice president of my chapter during the COVID-19 pandemic, I was presented with unprecedented challenges and used this experience to grow as a leader and as an individual. I am honored to have my international dues sponsored for this reason and hope to sponsor a Gamma Phi's dues in the future.”
Sarah McCord (Missouri State)
“For me, it shows that this sisterhood looks out for you no matter where you are, what you look like or what you've done. It means the world to me to have this support so I can continue being involved in this sisterhood as an alumna, but also through helping other sisters in the same format! Thank you, Susan, and those at Gamma Phi Beta, for being True and Constant sisters! If I could say thank you to my sponsor publicly I would just express pure gratitude. I am so appreciative of the support other sisters give to alumnae, current members and more. I can't say thank you enough!"

"For me, it meant the world to have my Life Loyal membership sponsored. After a very uncertain year, I have felt a little disconnected from my sisters and I wasn't sure if I was ready to graduate. Having this part of my alumna status taken care of means I get to continue my strengthened connection with Gamma Phi forever."
Izzy Toma (Christopher Newport)

"Thank you so much for sponsoring my international alumnae dues for the next year! Gamma Phi Beta has given so much to me the past four years, so it means the world to me to stay connected to the Sorority and especially the Delta Theta Chapter. I thank my lucky stars that I got to be a part of this organization over my college career and for the rest of my life. Once again, I really appreciate your generosity. I hope one day I can do the same for a deserving member of our chapter. "
Mahaila Nieslanik (Denver)
