In addition to our major Programs and Initiatives that support our National Five-Point Programs, Gwinnett County Alumnae Chapter established The Fortitude Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to partner with the chapter in the implementation of its service-oriented community projects and programs. One such partnership is our biennial Cotillion-Beautillion Ball. The primary purpose of the event is to expose female and male youth to educational, cultural, and social development activities.
GCAC hosts stellar programs such as our annual Taboo Tea, Delta Academy, and Delta GEMS. Our chapter supports international relief efforts and holds local political and economic forums, voter registration drives, and health fairs.
Through our Annual Scholarship Program, we have donated thousands of dollars to Gwinnett County high school seniors to help fund college expenses. GCAC also supports community events which include Gwinnett Relay for Life, Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful Campaign, Gwinnett Great Days of Service, and the annual AIDS Walk & 5K Run.
