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.

Illuminate

Illuminate is Alpha Sigma Tau’s four-year member development program, offering personal and professional growth for collegiate Sisters. The program provides intentional opportunities for women to both build themselves as individuals and develop deeper levels of sisterhood amongst one another. Interactive and research-driven, Illuminate is rooted in eight leadership competencies and grounded in the real-life experiences of thousands of successful women leaders. Illuminate equips each participant with the proven leadership skills she needs to become the woman she aspires to be.

Thanks to Foundation support, nearly 2,000 collegiate members refined their leadership skills through this life-changing program in the 2019-2020 academic year.

Not Anymore

Alpha Sigma Tau knows that one sexual assault is one too many.

Do you know that more than a third of female college seniors report that since starting college, they had experienced some kind of nonconsensual sexual contact? Or that 43% of college women who date report having experienced violent or abusive dating behaviors at some point in their lives?

Not Anymore is an engaging online program designed to educate members on sexual assault and relationship violence. It uses honest and compelling video tutorials to educate members and volunteers about consent, sexual assault, bystander intervention, and healthy relationships. The videos teach lessons that are drawn from the real world; they are honest, down-to-earth, and directly apply to the world of today’s college women.

GreekLifeEdu and the EverFi Prevention Suite

GreekLifeEdu is an engaging online program that offers new members objective, science-based courses addressing the critical issues of alcohol awareness, sexual assault, and hazing.

Leveraging the latest research and trends, and incorporating multiple evidence-based learning theories, GreekLifeEdu provides simple strategies to help students achieve behavior-change objectives, teach students to practice safe decision-making, and empower students to make well-informed decisions.

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.
