March of Dimes President Stacey Stewart thanks Tri Sigma for our support.
In 2016, Tri Sigma partnered with March of Dimes to enhance the service and philanthropic opportunities for its members. Tri Sigmas all across the country have joined the fight against prematurity, and we are just getting started.
During the first year of our partnership, Sigmas engaged to support March of Dimes through philanthropy, service and awareness raising. While some chapters, both collegiate and alumnae, volunteered at their local March of Dimes office, others raised money by hosting a fundraiser on campus or within their community. Chapters raised funds benefitting both the March of Dimes and Tri Sigma Foundation. For every gift designated for March of Dimes, Tri Sigma helps fund the five innovative and collaborative March of Dimes Prematurity Research Centers.
As March of Dimes signature event, March for Babies allowed members to show their purple pride as they volunteered or walked in their local community. From setup to tear down, Sigmas rallied with hundreds of babies, mothers and families who have been impacted by premature birth.
Together, we raised $99,413 benefitting the March of Dimes mission. As we begin our second year, we hope to continue our efforts and give even more hours of service in support of this cause. Through our March of Dimes partnership, Sigma Serves Children.
