2020-2021 RPM Grant Recipients

Thanks to the generosity of Tri Sigmas and friends, the Foundation awarded 15 local grants for 2020-2021, totaling $61,214 in community support for children and families.

The Robbie Page Memorial Fund is one way Tri Sigma chapters and members impact local children’s hospitals or health centers through Sigma Serves Children. Each year the Foundation awards local grants to therapeutic play programs nominated by an individual alumna, alumnae chapter, or collegiate chapter. Grants range from $100 to $5,000. To nominate an organization, a chapter must work closely with the agency to develop its grant application.

Thank you to all the Sigma sisters who submitted an RPM grant application. For questions, email foundation@trisigma.org.
