Since 1999, Tri Delta members have raised more than $70 million to support St. Jude patients and their families.
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 adopts 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.
In honor of this commitment, Tri Delta received recognition on the St. Jude campus with the naming of the short-term housing facility, Tri Delta Place.
Only three-and-a-half years into the 10-year commitment to raise $60 million, Tri Delta hit the halfway point and announced $30 million raised for St. Jude in January 2018.
Tri Delta collegiate and alumnae members continue to raise funds and awareness for St. Jude while striving to fulfill their $60 million commitment and assist in finding cures for childhood cancer.
With sustained acts of generosity and philanthropy, Tri Delta's dedication is unparalleled, all in service of a lifesaving mission: Finding cures. Saving children.®
Because of the sisters of Tri Delta, St. Jude won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
