In 1871, the Founders of Delta Gamma adopted the motto "Do Good." Today, Delta Gamma collegians nationwide stive to uphold this ideal through our annual philanthropy fundraiser, Anchor Splash! Anchor Splash!® - when fraternities and sororities compete in swimming events - is one of the most well recognized fundraisers in the Greek world today. Funds from this event support Delta Gamma's Philanthropies; Service for Sight, Scholarships, Fellowships and Loans, Values and Ethics Lectureships, as well as a number of educational programs for our members.
Begun in 1966 at Beta Tau Chapter as a way to celebrate their 25th anniversary, Anchor Splash has spread to chapters across North America. More than 110 Delta Gamma chapters annually hold a splash! Competitions include relay events, tube races, and "water ballet." Other Anchor Splash events that take place over the week include a Most Beautiful Eyes contest, Banner Contest, and more.
