PREVENT CHILD ABUSE AMERICA - SIGMA DELTA TAU'S NATIONAL PHILANTHROPY

Sigma Delta Tau's national philanthropy is Prevent Child Abuse America (PCAA). PCAA builds awareness, educates, and works with everyone involved in the effort to prevent the abuse and neglect of America's children. Prevention efforts are implemented nationwide at both the national and local level.

Our chapter holds two large events, Quest for the BeSDT and Eat Your Heart Out, every year raise money for PCAA. To find out more about PCAA and how you can help prevent child abuse, please visit PreventChildAbuse.org.

Philanthropy is core to the identity of our chapter and Sigma Delta Tau as a whole. Through our partnerships with Prevent Child Abuse America and Jewish Women International, we strive to empower others, uplift our community, and make true, impassioned change. Our sisterhood shows a real committment to these values, and every single one of us consistently shows an outstanding display of support — especially through our main events. By working with local businesses, campus clubs, and other Greek organizations, philanthropy at SDT has grown to be our largest, most important endeavor as a sisterhood.

QUEST FOR THE BESDT : DEFEAT CHILD ABUSE

We can't wait for our 4th annual Quest for the BeSDT! Each fall, the Columbia community battles for first place with choreographed dances, hilarious skits, incredible singing and everything in between at our old-school talent show on Columbia's biggest stage. Nothing is more fun than working together for an amazing cause! This past year, we're proud to say we raised over $5,000 for Prevent Child Abuse America. See you there!

EAT YOUR HEART OUT

Eat Your Heart Out is one of Sigma Delta Tau's annual events featuring various fundraising activities to raise support and awareness for Prevent Child Abuse America. This past spring, we hosted donation days at Insomnia Cookies, Pinkberry, and Five Guys, in addition to a Chipotle burrito stand and a Candyland-themed party. Sigma Delta Tau raised over $2,600 for PCAA and empowered our campus for the cause during this Week of Treats!

ΣΔΤ LATE

ΣΔΤ Late is Sigma Delta Tau’s largest fundraising event each semester and raises money to support our Sisterhood Scholarship Fund. Sigma Delta Tau is proud to be the only sorority on campus that offers a Scholarship Fund to help sisters pay dues. Each semester, we bake over 4,000 cookies and then deliver all over Columbia's campus!
