May I give graciously of what is mine...
Our philanthropy and passion as Delta Zeta sisters is Speech and Hearing. Nationally we support Starkey Hearing Foundation, SeriousFun Network, American Society for Deaf Children. Locally we support the Tennessee School for the Deaf and the UT department of Audiology and Speech Pathology. Each year we host fall and spring fundraising events to raise money to support these incredible organizations. This school year we raised over $44,000 to support our philanthropic partners.
Service is another big part of our Philanthropy focus. Throughout the year, we offer our members multiple opportunities to serve the UT and Knoxville communities. We have participated in numerous philanthropy "mixers", and participate in other Greek organization's fundraisers.

Fall Philanthropy Week 2021: “Trick or Treat Week”
Dedicating a whole week to philanthropy is one fun way for the women of Delta Zeta to give back to our national and local philanthropies. DZ hosted Percentage Days at both Duck Donuts and Moe’s Mexican Grill where students all over campus joined with good food for a good cause. Events like our Halloween Drive In movie event and our Touchdown for Tennessee tournament were huge successes! Both events were new traditions started at the Beta Lambda chapter in 2021, and will continue for years to come!
Spring Semester 2022: “Hoops for Hearing”
Every spring semester we host our annual Hoops For Hearing fundraising event to support both our national and local philanthropies. Fraternities in the IFC, MSC, and NPHC are invited to compete in a 5v5 basketball tournament coached by the women of Delta Zeta. Prizes are given out to the winning team, as well as the team that receives the most donations at the end of the event. Along with basketball, we are having a percentage night at Cruze farms and raising money through Crowdchange with “Dare a DZ”!
