Harmony with its best possibilities
Welcome to the Jacksonville Alumnae Panhellenic Association
Founded in 1914, the Jacksonville Alumnae Panhellenic Association has a continuous history of supporting the greater Jacksonville and Beaches community. The National Panhellenic Conference recognizes Alumnae Panhellenic Associations each year for outstanding achievements based on programming, fostering relationships with College Panhellenics, effective administration and promoting the Sorority experience among generations of young women. JAPA received both the Citation of Merit Award and the Programming Excellence Award for 2018-2019.
General Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month, September through May, at The Haskell Building, 111 Riverside Avenue, from 7:00 - 8:30 PM. Our program includes a guest speaker, a social period and a brief business meeting.
Our speakers include authors, celebrity personalities, directors of philanthropic organizations, educators and entertainers. Recent speakers have included community outreach leaders from Habitat for Humanity and Catty Shack Ranch in addition to a local Historian, Meteorologist, Nature and Wildlife Photographer.
We focus on making the maximum positive effort for our community. Our members provide the momentum that helps us affect change. We provide solutions that make a long-lasting difference. JAPA members donated over20,000 volunteer service hours to help those in our community.
A primary goal of JAPA is to provide scholarships to outstanding young women entering college and upper class Sorority women striving to complete their degrees. In the past 11 years, over $59,000 has been donated; benefiting 35 women from the Jacksonville area. These women have gone on to succeed at schools such as Harvard, Princeton, University of Florida, and other top universities.
