Since 1999, Tri Delta has raised more than $84 million to support St. Jude patients and their families.
A unique partnership
In 2014, Tri Delta set the ambitious goal of raising $60 million by 2024 – which they met in 2022. This is the single largest commitment ever completed by a St. Jude partner to date. In honor of this momentous pledge, St. Jude named its on-campus, short-term housing facility Tri Delta Place.
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.
- Callie Dietsch
Tri Deltas are dedicated to helping children live, scientists learn and St. Jude further its mission of finding cures for childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
November 1999 – Tri Delta officially adopted St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as its national philanthropic partner.
In 2005, a year earlier than expected, Tri Delta raised $1 million to endow the hospital's teen rooms.
The teen rooms at St. Jude are where teenage patients can go spend time with friends their age during treatment.
In 2006, Tri Delta took on a second commitment to raise $10 million in 10 years to name the patient care floor in the Chili's Care Center.
In just four years — by May 2010 — Tri Delta met the $10 million fundraising goal.
In July 2010, Tri Delta announced its third naming commitment, an aggressive challenge to raise $15 million in five years to name the specialty clinic located in the patient care center at St. Jude.
In just three and a half years, Tri Delta met the $15 million fundraising goal.
In 2014, Tri Delta committed to raising $60 million in 10 years – the largest single commitment by a St. Jude partner. This commitment was completed in 2022, two years ahead of schedule.
