As members, we commit ourselves to the values of Alpha Sigma Tau each day. As Sisters, we seek to support one another through the Sorority. As alumnae, we want current and future Sisters to share in our wonderful experiences.
Alumnae dues are a great way to “pay it forward” and support the Sorority’s growing programs that enrich the Sisterhood Experience for everyone.
Will you give today?
Alumnae are able to make annual dues payments online, through the mail with a check, or through their alumnae chapters/associations.
