Crista Cate Vasina
(Delta Gamma-Northern Colorado), Senior Director of Development
Alpha Phi has helped shape me into the woman I am today. Since joining in 1983 and attending my first leadership training in 1985, Alpha Phis have been my mentors, role models and some of my dearest friends. I give back to Alpha Phi because I believe in the impact we have on our members and the role we can play in making each member her best self.
(Beta Omicron-Bowling Green), Major Gifts Officer
In Alpha Phi, I have found true role models and my best friends. Since the beginning, our membership has been comprised of truly inspirational leaders—women ahead of their time whose bold ideas have impacted thousands of women and given them the space and support they need to fulfill their potential. Today, single-sex organizations are under attack, and it is important that we work together to ensure the future of our Fraternity.
(Theta Delta-Creighton), Manager of Annual Giving
Alpha Phi has meant never having to be alone. Throughout the years, I’ve had a powerful network of women that have supported and empowered me to be the best version of myself. Supporting Alpha Phi and Alpha Phi Foundation ensures opportunities for women to continue to grow their leadership potential and support women’s heart health, so all women can continue to live happy and healthy lives. I am grateful for all of the opportunities Alpha Phi has provided me and I am excited to pay it forward.
(Gamma Phi-Florida State), Donor Relations Manager
I support Alpha Phi because this organization believed in my potential for leadership and service to others long before I knew it myself. In Alpha Phi, I found impactful mentorship, lifelong friendship, and a call to pay it forward. Through advising and my Donor Relations opportunity with the Foundation, I am still inspired by Alpha Phi’s will to empower and uplift women’s lives through the power of philanthropy.
(Epsilon Alpha-Ashland), Database Specialist
Joining Alpha Phi has empowered me to take on leadership roles, challenge myself in all areas of life, and has promoted major personal growth within. I give to Alpha Phi Foundation to allow the work and values that have been instilled in me to transcend to future generations. I would not be where I am without Alpha Phi, and I want other women to feel the same impact that I have.
While creating awareness for women’s cardiac health, Alpha Phi Foundation fosters growth, sisterhood, and support among an incredible network of women.

The Foundation is an amazing means to bettering the future of women everywhere, and I am proud to be a part of it.
(Gamma-DePauw), Marketing & Communications Manager
The friendships and connections I’ve made through Alpha Phi are countless; the impact my sisters have made on me is immeasurable. With them by my side, I have become a stronger leader, better friend, and more confident woman. I give back to Alpha Phi because it is important to me that we support and empower one other to live our best lives and watch each other grow. In Alpha Phi, I found that support and I hope the same for collegiate women today.
