Alpha Phi Gamma National Sorority, Inc. (ΑΦΓ), also known as APhiG and Alpha Phi Gamma, is an Asian-interest sorority founded on February 1, 1994, at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona (Cal Poly Pomona).[2][3]

History and purpose

Alpha Phi Gamma was founded on February 1, 1994, and is the first Asian-American interest sorority established at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. The sorority strives to promote sisterhood, service, academic excellence, personal development, and Asian awareness.[citation needed] Although Alpha Phi Gamma is an Asian-interest sorority, its sisters believe strongly in the importance of diversity and accept women of all nationalities.[citation needed]

Alpha Phi Gamma is a member of the National APIDA Panhellenic Association (NAPA).[4]

Philanthropy

Alpha Phi Gamma's official National Philanthropy is the "Fight Against Violence Towards Women".

In November 2009, Alpha Phi Gamma became a member of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

Chapters

Alpha Phi Gamma names its campus groups "charters". The sorority currently has fifteen active charters, a provisional active charter, and has closed two associate charters, never installed, now inactive.[5][3]
