Tri Delta St. Jude Month Puzzle

Tri Delta women impact St. Jude through more than just fundraising. Countless collegiate members and alumna hold dynamic roles with the hospital such as staff, patients, patient families, and more - making our partnership particularly unique.


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.

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.

  1. Tri Delta patient care floor

    November 1999 – Tri Delta officially adopts St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as its national philanthropic partner.

  2. Teen Room St. Jude

    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.

  3. Tri Delta for St. Jude

    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.

  4. St. Jude welcomes Tri Delta

    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.

  5. Tri Delta Place

    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.

  6. Tri Delta

    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.

  7. Tri Delta members hand sign

    As of July 2020, Tri Delta has raised more than $48 million towards their current commitment of $60 million.

    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.
