“To those whom my life may touch in slight measure, May I give graciously Of what is mine.”


-Delta Zeta Creed



Since its founding, Delta Zetas’ all across the world have continued to uphold the tradition of service to others by supporting our two national philanthropies, the Painted Turtle Camp, and Speech and Hearing.


The Painted Turtle Camp

The Painted Turtle's mission is to provide a year-round, life-changing environment and authentic camp experience for children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses, and Delta Zeta members volunteer at the camp as well as raise money for this philanthropy. Our chapter has hosted at the University of Idaho our annual Turtle Tug, a tug-of-war competition in green jell-o. Within the past few years, we have donated thousands of dollars to support its cause; this past year, we have donated over $1,200.

Speech and Hearing

In 1954, Delta Zeta officially adopted Speech and Hearing as its national philanthropy. Delta Zeta has been supporting organizations such as the Starkey hearing Foundation and Gallaudet University which provide speech and hearing programs and conduct research into hearing aid technology.

Local Philanthropies

Since its colonization, the Pi Kappa chapter has continued to provide selfless service to others through various local philanthropies. We have participated in University Events or volunteered for organizations such as Paint the Palouse, Saturday of Service, Day of Service, Relay for Life, the  Humane Society for the Palouse, My Own Home, and Support our Troops donations. Additionally, we have participated in many Panhellenic and Inter Fraternity Council philanthropies which benefit not only their national philanthropies but also other charitable causes in the Palouse.
