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.

If you or a fellow sister is in need of financial assistance due to an unforeseen circumstance or illness, please fill out the following grant initial inquiry.

Once eligibility is confirmed, you will be asked to complete the One Hope Fund application. The One Hope Fund Committee will review the application and respond to your request within 10 days. All requests remain confidential. Please note the submission of a complete application does NOT mean automatic approval.
