Chapter Philanthropy & Service
Tri Delta is proud to be a philanthropic partner with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Through the efforts of Tri Delta women internationally, we have raised over $38,000,000 since our partnership with St. Jude began, and have become the top philanthropic fundraising sorority in the country. In 2014 Tri Delta pledged to raise $60,000,000 in 10 years; the largest commitment in St. Jude history. This pledge allowed us to name Tri Delta Place, the short-term housing facility for families at the St. Jude campus in Memphis, TN.
The sisters of Gamma Sigma are dedicated to our mission and work tirelessly for the children of St. Jude. We raise $55,000 for St. Jude, on average, every year, making up 97% of all Greek philanthropy at Colgate! Our larger events include Sincerely Yours, a national letter-writing campaign, and Tri-Hop event, a pancake and breakfast food buffet. We also have the unique opportunity of visiting our philanthropy, as our two philanthropy chairwomen attend the St. Jude—Tri Delta Leadership Weekend Conference held every year in Memphis. This amazing experience allows our sisters to witness first-hand all of the life-saving work that comes from our dedication.
