Since 1999, Tri Delta has raised more than $74 million to support St. Jude patients and their families.
What is Tri Delta's St. Jude month? Tri Delta's St. Jude month is our month-long, signature awareness campaign dedicated to amplifying the St. Jude mission. This year, we hope to boost the unique stories of Tri Delta women like you that hold dynamic roles with the hospital at all levels such as volunteers, donors, participants, staff, patients and families and more - though our unifying theme: Tri Delta women in action for St. Jude.

Why I chose to be a Tri Delta: Tri Delta was the obvious choice for me because of the commitment my chapter had for fundraising for St. Jude. Joining Tri Delta at Rhodes allowed me to support St. Jude and become active in my community in a variety of ways, including volunteering at the Tri Delta Place, as well as the Walk/Run efforts.
My St. Jude story: As a sophomore, I was introduced to ALSAC/St. Jude internship opportunities by my chapter’s vice president of administration, who quite literally wrote me a resume and made me apply. I am forever indebted to her because I ended up finding my passion at ALSAC/St Jude. Throughout college, I completed four internships, plus a contractor position post-grad at ALSAC/St. Jude, and gained so many professional skills along the way. Thanks to those experiences, I was able to put my best foot forward when I applied for a full-time position this year in the midst of a global pandemic, and finally land my dream job as a development specialist working with the youth team.
My biggest hope for Tri Delta and St. Jude: The St. Jude mission emphasizes a deep love for diversity through its dedication to helping children suffering from catastrophic diseases of all colors, religions or ability to pay. My biggest hope is that St. Jude and Tri Delta will continue to work together on diversity and inclusion.
I knew that I wanted to be a Tri Delta when I came to college so that I could advocate for the other kids of St. Jude.
