Our largest fundraiser, WDCAC’s Sunday Gospel Brunch is our signature annual event. This community fundraiser allows the community to gather for an afternoon filled with great food, spirit-filled entertainment, and warm fellowship while supporting a great cause. Proceeds from the Sunday Gospel Brunch benefit local community service programs and fund scholarships for D.C. students. Since its inception in 2018, the Sunday Gospel Brunch has raised over $108,000.
The Washington DC Alumnae Chapter (WDCAC) hosts fundraisers and seeks sponsorships with community partners to help fund its scholarships to students and various programs that serve to benefit the residents of the District of Columbia.
WDCAC also hosts Distinguished Men Cookin’ with the Deltas (DMCwD)! DMCwD is one of our longest running and most successful fundraisers. The success of this fundraiser has earned our chapter over $200,000 in fundraising dollars.
Some of the chapter’s past fundraisers have included a student anthology project entitled My Voice Matters: Telling Our Stories and Making a Difference that featured over 40 young writers who shared stories that spoke to the issues they faced daily; pop-up retail events at Alex and Ani’s National Harbor location where the chapter received a percentage of all sales for the day; the first-ever Walk-for-a-Cause where the community came together to raise money while doing cause-worthy wellness and self-care. and the annual HBCU Alliance 5k Run/Walk where the chapter’s team shared a wonderful heart-healthy experience.
The WDCAC has served the Washington, D.C. community for over 100 years by providing college scholarships and community programs in Economic Development, Educational Development, International Awareness and Involvement, Physical and Mental Health, and Political Awareness and Involvement.
