Grants to Alpha Sigma Tau Sorority

Since its inception, the Foundation has granted nearly $1 million in support of Sorority programs.

MoneySmarts U

By some estimates, women will control as much as two-thirds of the nation’s wealth in the coming years. However, women continue to lag behind men in financial literacy—a disparity with far-reaching implications. Alpha Sigma Tau is committed to providing members the opportunity to ensure financial empowerment through the delivery of MoneySmarts U, and the Alpha Sigma Tau Foundation is proud to support this effort thanks to donations from members and friends like you.

From pre-college to considering graduate school, the MoneySmarts U platform lets students choose the course that best suits their stage in life. Each course includes high-energy videos that teach students how to prepare for and manage their financial futures.

Name Your Story

Name Your Story is Alpha Sigma Tau’s newest Health & Safety initiative. Brought to us by Dr. Lauren Cook, who spoke at our 44th National Convention and was a favorite among our collegian attendees, this program gives our members the opportunity to not only learn about the signs and symptoms of the most common mental health concerns affecting college students today but also provides them with training on how to talk about these experiences with one another. Participants also get an opportunity to learn about self-care and how to prioritize their well-being.

Through video-based online learning modules, our Sisters will come away with a new understanding of their mental health. They will also appreciate that there has been an intentional opportunity for them to learn more about the information they have likely already been seeking. By talking about mental health, we are making it not only okay for our members to engage in their mental health pursuits but supporting it. This helps our collegiate Sisters feel comfortable seeking mental health resources preventatively and purposefully.

Convention and Officer Academy

Each year, more than 350 collegiate members participate in leadership development programs at Convention and Officer Academy.

Each program equips participants with the proven skills needed for successful Sorority leadership and – more than that – instills the tools to be successful in life. Past participants have found these programs to be a pivotal event in the leadership of their chapters, and in their own lives.

Donating money to the Foundation was just one way for me to express my appreciation for the resources, like Illuminate, they provide Alpha Sigma Taus that help us grow as individuals.
