May 2020 Philanthropy Fun Fact
Even in the midst of these uncertain times, we can be brave, bold, and kind by advancing the magnificent, meaningful, and marvelous motto of Tri Delta. Throughout the year, our chapter answered the call to “Let us steadfastly love one another”. With your support, we raised hundreds of dollars for the children and families of St. Jude's Hospital and have donated gently used clothing to The Lamb Center to aid as dozens of women transition out of homelessness. Thank you for living a life of Delta Love!
April 2020 Philanthropy Fun Fact
April showers should bring rightful reasons for Tri Delts to rejoice. Although many of our collegiate sisters are preparing to close-out an unexpected ear, they can still find inspiration from sisters like Barbara Downey Freson. And, so can you. Barbara was a dedicated member of our Alumnae chapter who selflessly gave her time, treasure, talent, and perseverance to raising a large portion of the scholarship fund. Barbara coordinated the "Delta Shop" and dedicated the proceeds towards our undergraduate scholarship. This month will you join us in honoring Barbara's legacy by turning April showers into a reason and season for generosity to reign? When paying your dues, please consider a donation to the Barbara Downey Freson Scholarship Fund. Contributions of any size make a meaningful difference and we thank you in advance for honoring Barbara's legacy while investing in the potential of a collegiate sister.
March 2020 Philanthropy Fun Fact
March is the perfect month for pansies to bloom. As you witness the beauty of the Tri Delta flower, remember it is a symbol of alumni membership and the third step in our lifetime development. When you support our alumnae philanthropy you help actualize the power, purpose and passion of the pansy. Tri Delta chose children’s cancer charities as our philanthropy focus in the early 1970s—please continue to support our efforts so we can boldly build upon our legacy.
February 2020 Philanthropy Fun Fact
February is a wonderful time to highlight the heart of our philanthropic matters. In 2018, our Chapter reamed our scholarship to the Barbara Downey Freson Undergraduate Scholarship to honor the memory of one of our most loyal proponents of the scholarship. Your support enables us to award scholarships to collegian sisters. Thank you in advance for helping us spread Delta Love through our alumnae philanthropy.
