National
Delta Zeta's national philanthropy is the Delta Zeta Foundation which supports those who are speech and/or hearing impaired. Annual donations are made to Gallaudet University, which is located in Washington D.C., and also to the House Ear Institute, which is located in Los Angeles, CA. Gallaudet University is the only accredited four-year liberal arts college for the hearing impaired in the entire world and Delta Zeta has been working with the University since 1955.
 
Local Philanthropy throughout South Carolina
The Omicron Mu Chapter of Delta Zeta prides itself in serving several local charitable organizations as well as many thoughout the state of South Carolina. 
 
THE DELTA ZETA COOL CATS
The Delta Zeta Cool Cats are a group of women formerly of the Cannon Manner House in Spartanburg, South Carolina.  These adult women are very special to Delta Zeta.  The Cool Cats are women who face special challenges throughout everyday that many of us will never have to face.  Being mentally and physically handicapped can hinder some from experiencing life to the fullest.  The women in the Cool Cats Sorority do not believe this at all.  Delta Zeta started this sorority to prove that women can be leaders, socialites, and prominate members of society no matter what obstacles life may face us with.  The sisters of Delta Zeta visit with the Cannon Manner Cool Cats, have parties, and even threw a joint Boy/Girl Dance with the male house and the Kappa Sigma Fraternity.  We believe in the success of this sorority and will continue our relationship with these women for years to come.  Always remember  Cool Cats:
What you feel is what you are and what you are is BEAUTIFUL!
 
 
March of Dimes
The Omicron Mu Chapter of Delta Zeta also works intricately with the March of Dimes.  Each year we volunteer hours at the annual Chef's Auction, Kickoff Parties, T-Shirt Rallies, Registration, and we sponsor teams during the Spartanburg Walk America.  Each Spring Semester the students and faculty expect to see us out and around campus selling our March of Dimes Sneakers and Booties for the Walk America.  We hold raffles and bake sales in order to increase the amount of donations we send each year.  We believe in this organization because:
Saving Babies Saves Lives
 
Turtle Tug
Every Fall Semester Delta Zeta sponsors a Turtle Tug.  What is a Turtle Tug you may wonder?  The Delta Zeta Turtle Tug is a giant competition of Tug-of-War of a huge pit of jello!!!! Each year every member of Delta Zeta collects teams to play in the event.  Each team pays an entry fee and competes for the title of the Turtle Tug Champion of the Year.  At the end of the day we gather our donations and contributions and send them to the Delta Zeta Foundation.
 
MR. DELTA ZETA STAR SEARCH
The Mr. Delta Zeta Star Search is an AWESOME EVENT!  Founded by Amber Armour this event is a huge FUN-Raiser.  The Mr. Delta Zeta Star Search brings talent to the University of South Carolina-Upstate such as Twista, New Kids on the Block, Elvis, Billy Ray Cyris, and even MICHAEL JACKSON!  This event is held during the Spring Semester each school year. This is a community-wide event and we can't wait to see you there. DZ Girls Always Remember:
We may stand out, but we never stand alone.  There's nothing we wouldn't do for a good cause.
 
Throughout the year Delta Zeta also participates in many more philanthropic events.  Our chapter loves to serve local & state organizations throughout South Carolina.  If you are interested in our help with a particular project please contact our philanthropy chair, Nicole Rodzen. There's nothing we'd rather do than give back to the community that has given so much to us.

To those whom my life may touch in slight measure, may I give graciously of what is mine.- The Delta Zeta Creed
