Sigma Delta Tau’s national philanthropy is Prevent Child Abuse America (PCAA), an organization whose mission is to put an end to the treacheries of child abuse, while instilling hope into youth. Each spring we put together a philanthropic event to raise money for and support PCAA. This past spring our event was named, "Sig Delt Street Hockey." We also strongly support the PCAA Pinwheels for Prevention campaign through sales of their blue pinwheels. Through these year-round sales, we are able to promote the PCAA cause on campus while raising funds to support the organization. We are proud to support an important and worthy cause!
Additionally, Sigma Delta Tau supports Jewish Women International (JWI), as well as Women for Women International, which both aid in the development of financially independent women. JWI focuses on supporting women financially and in times of domestic unrest through supporting women’s shelters and workshops. Women for Women focuses on supporting females in war-torn countries, helping them to regain independence.
JWI has partnered with Sigma Delta Tau chapters nationwide to create Girls Achieve Grapeness! – a campaign empowering the next generation to break the cycle of violence against women. It began with a custom shade of OPI nail polish created to support JWI programs that help girls and young women become safe and independent. To help support these organizations prevent domestic violence, we sell OPI nail polish during the month of October.
