Our story to share with you this year is one of success for the Gamma Phi Beta Foundation.
You will see in this annual report how your gifts changed lives, left a legacy of love and made
it possible for Gamma Phi Beta to thrive. Your gifts made our accomplishments possible.
Everyone has a story to tell.
Stories include leadership opportunities for our collegians, alumnae and volunteers,
communities impacted from our philanthropic commitment to Building Strong Girls and
financial aid for our members’ educational success. You made it possible for the Foundation
to grant $282,000 for leadership development; providing funding for the Collegiate
Leadership Consultant (CLC) program and REAL Leadership events, including our first event
for emerging leaders, the REAL Leadership Experience. We impacted many young women
through our philanthropic investment of $357,000. Generous partners also made it possible
to grant $153,000 in financial aid for students.
The story of the One Heart campaign continues to inspire. Launched at Convention 2014,
this historic campaign ensures the ongoing success of Gamma Phi Beta for generations to
come through the power and strength of our sisterhood, our joined hearts and our collective
impact. Many of you have already invested in the One Heart campaign and for those who

campaign at Convention 2016 in Atlanta.
Together, we’re sharing the story of Gamma Phi Beta each and every day, with each
