Create your Alpha Phi Legacy
Since 1872, Alpha Phi has inspired young women to support one another in lifelong achievement. Now, we’re asking you to make a commitment to the future of Alpha Phi by including a gift to benefit the Foundation in your estate plans.
Clara Bradley Burdette Society
“Live a life of purpose.” – Clara Bradley Burdette
Alpha Phi Foundation’s planned giving circle, the Clara Bradley Burdette Society, is named after founder Clara Bradley Burdette. Clara was a philanthropist who funded a maternity wing at Pasadena Hospital in 1904. Her prime objective in life was developing better opportunities for women, and one of her personal mottos was to “live a life of purpose.”
Clara is also known for coining the phrase, “As long as memory remains to me, I will remember Alpha Phi.” These words speak to each of us, and they serve as a constant reminder that tomorrow’s Fraternity depends on today’s members.
Those who came before us paved the way for our strong, vibrant Alpha Phi.
Now it’s our turn to do the same.
It’s never too early to think about planning your future gift to the Foundation. Many of these gifts benefit you in your lifetime, as well as provide future gifts to the Foundation.
As a member of the Clara Bradley Burdette Society, you will receive the beautiful silver and bordeaux pin. This pin includes 10 bordeaux stones representing our 10 Founders and is designed in a knot to embody our eternal tie to Alpha Phi.
