How We Give Graciously

We're members on a global mission to make the world a better place. Feel free to scroll down and check out how we give graciously!


Starkey hearing foundation

The Starkey Hearing Foundation partnership was announced in 2006 at our National Convention. There are 20,000 hearing aids delivered annually to deaf and “hard of hearing” individuals in the US with limited financial resources. This is done through the Hear Now program, which collects hearing aids for recycling purposes.

Gallaudet University

Gallaudet university

Gallaudet University is located in Washington, D.C. and has been a philanthropic partner of Delta Zeta since 1954. It is the World’s only university with undergraduate programs accessible to deaf and “hard of hearing” students. At Gallaudet University, Delta Zeta endowed the Delta Zeta Scholarship Fund and the Fine Arts Endowment Fund. There is also a collegiate Delta Zeta chapter, Omicron Sigma, at the university.

Delta Zeta And Our Community

As Delta Zeta members, we expect our sisters to have 100% involvement. This means that each member is involved in another club, organization, or philanthropy. We have several sisters involved in New Student Orientation (NSO), the Deaf Studies Association, University Ambassadors, and many more! We love encouraging our sisters to get out there and participate in what they are passionate about.


CSUN New Student Orientation (NSO)

Our beautiful sisters supporting the continuous process of integrating new students into the academic, cultural and social context of CSUN.



On April 8, 2017 Truly Connected was launched on the west coast at Paramount Pictures Studios in Los Angeles, California. The event provided Delta Zeta women who are dedicated to lifelong learning the opportunity to find inspiration, share true advice, make connections, and invest in themselves.

national convention

Our sisters Danielle Armstrong, Jescuh Hansapiromchok, and Hannah Labra were chosen to fly to Orlando, FL for the National Convention and represent the Pi Gamma Chapter. At the convention, they were able to go to workshops and round tables to grow their leadership skills and also be a part of the voting process for new National Bylaws.


Our sister Jescuh Hansapiromchok (Rujjares) won an award as an outstanding delegate for the Model United Nations Conference. 



This summer our sister Anna Ching is working as an Academic Mentor for the Residential Bridge Educational Opportunity Program. This program works with low income and first generation college students who are special admits that were denied by CSUN, but have high potential. She will be working with students who thought college was never possible for them throughout the 6 week summer phase to the transition from high school to college.
