On April 2, 2009, Alpha Xi Delta Fraternity and Autism Speaks, the nation’s largest autism science and advocacy organization, announced a philanthropic partnership. Since then the sorority and its more than 135,000 members across the country work to raise autism awareness and provide financial support for Autism Speaks.
Chicago North Shore Alumnae Association supports this partnership of Autism Speaks and the Alpha Xi Delta Foundation.
