List of NPC Sororities by Founder's Day Date (calendar date)

I was wondering if anyone knew of a list of the founder's day dates of the NPC Sororities (and other inter/national orgs) in calendar order.

For example:

ABC founded January 12, 1899
DEF founded February 3, 1881
GHI founded February 25, 1903

I have Googled but I think I am not using the right search parameters. I also checked the NPC site but I didn't find what I was looking for.

I was wondering because it would be nice to have a list of perhaps all of the inter/national groups including NPC, NHPC, NIC, other National social Fraternities (don't know the other delegations), National Service orgs, etc., so that others can wish each other "Happy Founder's Day".

Any direction is appreciated.

If you wait until I get back later, my pledge manual has a list of the founding dates of all GLOs and I'll type it up.

How sweet of you! Thank you! I wasn't asking anyone to do the work for me, but wondered if it had already been done. If not, I was going to start a list of NPCs, then go on to the other national umbrellas.

Not all groups celebrate Founders Day on or near the date of the actual founding. Delta Gamma was founded at Christmas but we celebrate Founders Day on or near March 15.

Why? Just so Christmas doesn't overshadow it?

I will save you a trip to Theta's website.

We were founded on January 27, 1870.

Maybe because school is not in session and the college chapters want to celebrate it together? We always had a luncheon with the alumnae in our city to celebrate our Founders Day.

Oh, wow, thanks so far! I think I will start one for NPC, and if anyone from NPHC or any of the fraternity councils would like to share, that would be great. I am not trying to exclude Multi Cultural, cultural, or local organizations. I was originally looking to make a list for NPC but there are other inter/national delegations/groups out there and would like to make a list and put it up somewhere here.

I'm going down the list that NPC has with links to each org's homepage.

Thanks for the help!

To clarify, most inter/national fraternities and sororities. Looking at the list now, it doesn't appear to have any NALFO orgs though all the D9 is on there. It stops at Iota Phi Theta for men's fraternities and at Sigma Gamma Rho for women's fraternities and sororities.

So you were technically founded on December 25 (?) 1873, but celebrate on March 15 (which year??)? What is the date that DG gives as it's official founding date? I saw a photo on DG's history slideshow that described your founding "during Christmas season 1873". What year would I put as "Founders Day" then?

Alpha Omicron Pi was founded on January 2, 1897 - however Founders' Day is celebrated on or around December 8th due to most schools being on break on January 2nd and December 8 is one of our founder's birthday.

Regarding Delta Gamma, I would simply put Christmas 1873 (as it is very probable it wasn't exactly on Christmas Day). The year of when Founders' Day is celebrated is irrelevant because when the organization was actually founded is what gives the group its age.

Just some corrections to the list:
Kappa Alpha Theta January 27, 1870 (not 1867)
Delta Delta Delta November 27, 1888 (not 22nd - according to their website)
Alpha Omicron Pi January 2, 1897 (not June)

Those were the three that I spotted off the bat. . . .
