Since 1899, Alpha Sigma Tau has been devoted to empowering and enriching the lives of women. Today, we continue this commitment by extending our impact beyond our own circle of Sisters.

As a Sisterhood, we contribute our share to helping all women become the best versions of themselves. That’s why we developed the Women’s Wellness Initiative as our National Philanthropy. We believe that women who achieve and maintain wellness are more likely to reach their fullest potential. The Initiative provides a platform and an outlet for members to empower women through hands-on service with our National Service Partners.

Meet our National Service Partners

Through the Initiative, we have established relationships with National Service Partners who believe in empowering women and girls in the communities where our members are. Currently, our partners include Dress for Success and Girls Who Code, and we are continuously working to add to our list of National Service Partners with other networked nonprofits committed to this purpose.

Dress for Success

Dress for Success is an international nonprofit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire, and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

Girls Who Code

Girls Who Code is an international nonprofit organization working to close the gender gap in technology. Girls Who Code programs inspire, educate, and equip girls with the computing skills they will need to pursue 21st-century opportunities.

Why Women’s Wellness?

Our members want opportunities for community service and philanthropy that are relevant to Alpha Sigma Tau’s mission, vision, and values. They want to have an impact on their local communities. They want to empower women and girls in ways that uplift generations to come. They want an exceptional national brand identity as it relates to philanthropy while maintaining the independence to choose projects most relevant to their chapters.

Through the Women’s Wellness Initiative, we are truly women empowering women. For Dress for Success, our members are hosting fundraisers, collecting donations of clothing and personal care items, volunteering, and educating students on their campus about the mission of Dress for Success. For Girls Who Code, our members are establishing Clubs, facilitating programs, volunteering at Girls Who Code events, and perpetuating Girls Who Code campaigns.

Six Dimensions of Wellness

The Women’s Wellness Initiative is grounded in the Six Dimensions of Wellness of the National Wellness Institute – a nationally-recognized leader in promoting optimal health and wellness in individuals and communities. These dimensions are the result of decades of research, which shows that individuals who achieve and maintain wellness are considerably more likely to lead successful, fulfilling lives.
