Tri Delta commitment


Tri Delta

Tri Delta makes the largest single fundraising commitment in the history of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

 

In July 2010, Tri Delta decided that they wanted to raise $15 million in just five years to name the Specialty Clinic located in the Patient Care Center at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. They achieved this goal almost two years ahead of schedule. But that wasn't enough for this organization. They have now committed to raising $60 million in 10 years to name the on-campus, short-term housing facility Tri Delta Place.

When families arrive at St. Jude for treatment, they don’t have to worry about finding a place to stay. That’s because St. Jude provides free housing for patients in three locations, and their home away from home on the St. Jude campus is the future Tri Delta Place.

A Perpetual Bond of Friendship

Tri Delta officially adopted St. Jude as its national philanthropic partner in November 1999. Since then, the fraternity’s members have raised more than $30 million for St. Jude, including $1 million to endow the hospital’s teen room, $10 million to name the patient care floor in the Chili’s Care Center and $15 million to name the specialty clinic in the Patient Care Center.

“One of my favorite parts of Tri Delta's partnership with St. Jude is seeing how quickly we reach our fundraising goals," said Tri Delta member and St. Jude patient Emily. "I'm always amazed how much our organization can accomplish. I think most Tri Delta members would agree with me when I say it's a true privilege to leave such a legacy of philanthropy and generosity. Our new goal will be no exception, and I cannot wait to begin working towards achieving it."

Another Tri Delta member and St. Jude patient, Vivian, also expressed her pride about the goals already accomplished by her fraternity and ones they hope to achieve in the future.

“I am filled with so much pride that Tri Delta continues to be one of St. Jude's largest donor organizations. My hard-working and dedicated sisters donate an incredible amount of time and love to St. Jude, and it is the most fulfilling effort. The more money we raise, the more passion we feel to be St. Jude's top fundraising organization,” she said.
