Philanthropy and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

 

Phi Delta Chi is committed to raising funds and awareness for worthy causes. One of the most notable causes the fraternity is involved with is St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Phi Delta Chi, a professional pharmacy fraternity, develops student leaders to advance the pharmacy profession. The mission of Phi Delta Chi goes hand-in-hand with the mission of St. Jude. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital works to improving the lives of children by striving to provide quality services to patients, thereby advancing public health and strengthening the health professional community. We are proud to have forged a partnership with St. Jude and we look forward to continue supporting their efforts for the children they treat and the breakthroughs they make for children all around the world.

 

History of St. Jude and Phi Delta Chi

In August 1995, Phi Delta Chi adopted St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as its national philanthropic partner at the 60th Grand Council Meeting in Memphis, TN. Phi Delta Chi Collegiate and Alumni Chapters from across the country have raised money and awareness for the hospital, most notably through the Prescription for Hope program.  In August 2007, the Fraternity expanded support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital using a targeted letter-writing campaign called The Prescription for Hope. Through this campaign, the Fraternity pledged to raise $200,000 over 4 years.  In April 2009, Phi Delta Chi surpassed this goal within just 2 years! Upon completion of this commitment, the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s outpatient pharmacy located on the first floor of the Patient Care Center was named in honor of Phi Delta Chi’s commitment.

 

 

The Executive Council and Regional Officers acted upon the Grand Council’s desire to continue to support St. Jude by identifying a new goal and naming opportunity. In 2010, Phi Delta Chi announced a new commitment: $1 million over the next 10 years, St. Jude recognized our support with the naming of an adjoining patient/parent room in gratitude of Phi Delta Chi. Patients need 

the support and love of their families during hospitalizations, yet they also need their own privacy from time to time. Adjoining parent rooms allow the parents to be there for their child when needed, while still giving both parents and patients the privacy they need. The goal of these adjoining patient/parent rooms is to provide comfort and privacy to both patients and parents Through the dedication of our Brothers, friends and family, we were able to meet this goal in just 7 years.


In August 2017, the Phi Delta Chi Executive Council announced another commitment to St. Jude: $1 million over the next 7 years with the result being a radiation oncology recovery suite being named after Phi Delta Chi. Brothers fundraise for St. Jude through the online Prescription for Hope and St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer.
