Staying Connected to Alpha Phi



As an alumna member, one of the easiest ways to stay connected to Alpha Phi is to pay your dues. There are two types of Alpha Phi International dues you can pay. To remain in good standing with the Fraternity, you are responsible for paying your International Alumnae dues during each fiscal year (July 1–June 30). These monies directly support the Fraternity and help the Executive Office to continue to develop programs and services for alumnae and collegians. Alpha Phi needs your support, and it helps you stay connected, especially through receipt of all four issues of the Quarterly magazine.

You can pay annual dues, which, as of April 2017, are $38.44 (that includes dues of $37 and your Founders’ Day pennies) or lifetime dues, currently $450. With lifetime dues, your annual dues and Founders’ Day pennies are paid up for the rest of your life.

In addition, Alpha Phi offers its annual Alumnae Advantage Program for $50, which enhances your alumna membership experience with programs and services available only to alumnae who choose to join the program. Your dues and Founders’ Day pennies are included in the cost, and some of the benefits include corporate discounts at rental car agencies, discount tickets at movie theaters and full access to the Alpha Phi online community—another great way to stay connected.

If you choose to join a local traditional alumnae chapter or Ivy Connection chapter, it may charge local dues that will range from $10 to $25, but some don’t charge dues at all. This money supports the alumnae chapter’s social programs, events, newsletters, fundraising efforts and more.

Giving to the Alpha Phi Foundation is another way to stay connected and give back. There are many opportunities to donate, including annual or monthly gifts at any level.

As an alumna, you will now also have the opportunity to write recommendations for legacies or potential new members, which keeps you connected to your collegiate chapter in an important way. No matter what else you do, keep your information up to date, so we can always connect with you.
