The Delta Gamma Foundation is contributing $50,000 from the Foundation funds to match the $50,000 that has been raised by the local Delta Gamma chapter. The $100,000 gift establishes the Delta Gamma Foundation Lectureship in Values and Ethics at Texas A&M University.

Some of the speakers who have been invited to speak at past Delta Gamma lectureships across the country are Queen Noor, Barbara Bush, Madeline Albright, Maya Angelou, President Gerald Ford, Colin Powell and Jeff Probst just to name a few.
Delta Gamma Lectureships in Values and Ethics were established in 1992 when Dr. Paul Martin and his wife, Dotty, Eta Chapter of Delta Gamma at Akron University, contributed three $50,000 grants to the Foundation in recognition of their 50th wedding anniversary. The Martins committed to providing additional funds for a total of fourteen lectureships. There are currently thirteen lectureships across the country and the lectureship at Texas A&M University will be the fourteenth and final one from their gift.
