One Hope Fund

Exemplifying our motto, Patriae Multae Spes Una—One Hope of Many People—the One Hope Fund is our first impact program to serve SDT sisters during every phase of their lives. Grants from the One Hope Fund are for collegiate and alumnae women facing difficulty due to an unforeseeable circumstance, such as unexpected financial distress, serious health issues, consequences of natural disasters or urgent family crisis. Please note this Fund cannot be used to pay membership dues for Sigma Delta Tau.

Disaster Relief Assistance
One Hope Natural Disaster Grants may be awarded up to $250 per disaster per recipient to both undergraduate and alumnae members in good standing who need assistance with essential expenses due to a federally-declared disaster. No repayment is necessary.  Grants are limited by available resources and number of applicants.
