A unique opportunity sits in your hands during this exciting time in our Fraternity's history! you can make your mark on the Alpha Gamma Delta international headquarters initiative to help the fraternity preserve its legacy for decades to come.
Throughout the years, Alpha Gamma Delta International Headquarters has become so much more than a place of business; it's become the home of our Fraternity and a point of pride for Alpha Gams worldwide. First established as the Central Office in New York City in 1927 to house the day to day operations of our ever-growing Fraternity, International Headquarters has changed addresses several times in the past 85 years to accommodate the expanding needs of the organization. But, no matter its location, the building has and always will be for you—our members.
Alpha Gamma Delta is embarking on an initiative to allow all sisters the opportunity to contribute to the Fraternity's work in a lasting and physical way. Learn more here.
You can make your mark on Alpha Gamma Delta's history by making a monetary donation to the International Headquarters Initiative. Your donation will help offset renovation and furniture costs, and provide final funds needed to fully furnish and equip the new headquarters building.
Maybe you have a particular love of the Fraternity's past and would consider a gift specifically designated to the archival display space in the new building. Maybe you'd like to join with a group of chapters or sisters to honor a special Alpha Gam by naming a room or an area of the building in her honor or memory. Or maybe you are just the sister we have been looking for who would like to contribute a substantial naming gift for the building. Whatever your motivation or capacity to give, we welcome the opportunity for you to leave a lasting legacy to the new Alpha Gamma Delta International Headquarters!
Please consider supporting the International Headquarters Initiative as the Fraternity strives to ensure that our home serves you and all of Alpha Gamma Delta for a lifetime. It truly is the preservation of our legacy.

By summer 2014, the first floor of the new International Headquarters building will also be home to a dedicated archival space which will permanently display many of the Fraternity's historic treasures along with other memorabilia. These permanent displays will be used to tell the founding story and evolution of Alpha Gamma Delta over the last century.
Although design plans are in the very early stages, some proposed components include:
- An interactive timeline spanning from Alpha Gams founding in 1904 to present day, complete with interesting archival pieces for each decade.
- An international chapter map, which will geographically display the location of all installed chapters along with their installation dates.
- A rotating display that will highlight different historical events and topics over the coming years. Some examples include memorabilia from all International Conventions and personal belongings of our Founders.
