  • The UCSB Ca Nu chapter raises money for the local Children's Miracle Network Hospital: Cottage Children's Medical Center in Santa Barbara, California

  • Our chapter has raised money for this cause by hosting Krispy Kreme, Mojo Teahouse, and Panda Express fundraisers on campus

  • Our chapter is also planning an anatomy fashion show event that is open to the public, and uses local Miracle Children as artists and models!


Phi Delta Epsilon believes in giving back to our global community.

Our international philanthropic and service partner is Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals. There are more than 170 Children’s Miracle Network hospitals worldwide. Each year these hospitals treat 17 million children for every disease and injury imaginable. Collectively they impact the lives of more children than any other children's organization in the world.

Children’s hospitals are special places, graced with experts trained in the care and handling of small, fragile, sick and injured children.

It is critical that we, as a society, support these islands of care because any child can get sick or become seriously injured. When they do, it is critical that there be a children’s hospital nearby.
