The purpose of the Gamma Phi Beta Foundation is to support and inspire the lifelong development of women.
The Foundation was established in January 1959 as the fundraising arm of Gamma Phi Beta Sorority. The two are separate legal entities that support each other's missions, vision and values. Both are housed at International Headquarters in Centennial, Colorado.
Gamma Phi Beta Sorority was one of the first National Panhellenic Conference organizations to establish a foundation for educational fundraising. In the last 50 years, Gamma Phi Beta Foundation has distributed more than $12.5 million: $5.3 million for leadership education, $3.7 million for our chapters' philanthropic endeavors and $3.5 million in financial aid.
