What is Founders Day of Giving?
Alpha Sigma Tau's Founders Day of Giving is a two-day fundraising event where AΣΤ alumnae, collegians, families, and friends come together and support women's empowerment, education, and sisterhood.
The Alpha Sigma Tau experience and legacy depends on members and friends who show their support, and Founders Day of Giving is our annual opportunity to unite in support of AΣΤ.
What does a donation support?
Gifts to the AΣΤ Foundation provide financial support for many of the Sorority’s educational and charitable programs. Whether it is grant funding to keep sorority membership costs accessible, programs that enrich our lives and make us all better women, or tools to help members navigate life’s uncertainty, gifts to the Foundation impact all areas of the organization. Your Founders Day of Giving contributions ensure our Sisterhood not only survives but is positioned to thrive!
