In the spring of 2021, Alpha Xi Delta announced it ended its 12 year partnership with Autism Speaks, the nation’s largest autism science and advocacy organization, and started the Alpha Xi Delta KINDLY HEARTS CAMPAIGN

The Kindly Hearts Campaign is a year-long campaign focused on service and fundraising to support our communities in some of the areas most directly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Campaign will run during the fall 2021 and spring 2022 semesters. As much of the U.S. and the world continues to cope with, and seek to recover from, the COVID-19 pandemic, Alpha Xi Delta is galvanizing our membership around this shared experience and deploying our time, talents and treasures to serve our local communities that are in need.

To support the Kindly Hearts Campaign, Alpha Xi Delta chapters and alumnae associations create project plans within one or more of the following areas of focus: supporting students, food insecurity, and basic needs shortages.

Chicago North Shore Alumnae Association supports the new KINDLY HEARTS CAMPAIGN and the Alpha Xi Delta Foundation.


The Northwestern University Settlement House is located at 1400 Augusta Blvd in Chicago and provides a number of services for children of the working poor in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood.  Two of the Association’s sisters are actively involved and help direct our support.  Chicago North Shore Alumnae Association provides for a family in December at holiday time with gifts for each person, household items and other funds for food or utilities.
