The Sigma Delta Tau Foundation is committed to empowering SDT sisters to grow personally and professionally through annual scholarship opportunities, essential funding of Sigma Delta Tau educational programs, and influential charitable giving from alumnae, collegians, and friends of Sigma Delta Tau.

Our History

The Winter 1960 edition of the Torch magazine made the Foundation official! We have evolved as the needs of our sisters have changed and we take pride in our parntership with the SDT Sorority to ensure our sisters have access to personal and professonal opportunties that help them succeed as empowered women.

The Foundation Today

In 2022, the Sigma Delta Tau Foundation surpassed one million dollars directly invested into our sisterhood. This milestone includes financial assistance for sisters through initiatives including our national scholarship program, One Hope hardship grants and annual program grants to help the SDT sorority provide impactful member experiences. The ripple effect is even greater as financial assistance from the Foundation has eased the burden for sisters, parents, chapters and our beloved sorority. We will continue to grow our impact thanks to generous donors who make it possible for the Foundation to be there for our women with financial support, high-quality programs, and life-changing experiences.


The Foundation Board of Trustees is comprised of Sigma Delta Tau sisters, elected by the Board for staggered terms of office. The trustees oversee the work of the Foundation and assist with fundraising.
