Celebrating 118 Years of Sisterhood
Founders Day of Giving

Welcome to Alpha Sigma Tau’s 2nd Annual Founders Day of Giving, a 27-hour event to grow a stronger future for our Sisterhood through support of the Foundation.

The 2017 event will celebrate the 118th anniversary of Alpha Sigma Tau Sorority's founding and will begin at 11:00 a.m. ET on Thursday, November 2, and conclude at 11:00 a.m. PT on Friday, November 3. 

The extraordinary support of members and friends across the country made our inaugural Founders Day of Giving one for the Alpha Sigma Tau record books. Last year's event raised more than $68,000 from 905 gifts. With your support, we will have another historic day!

Matching gifts and bonus funds played a huge role in the success of our inaugural event. If you are interested in learning more about offering a challenge for 2017, please email foundation@alphasigmatau.org

You may also support the day by participating as an ambassador. Use the ambassador link on this page to learn more or sign-up. 

 

Thank you in advance for your commitment to empowering women and growing the future with your Founders Day of Giving contribution. We look forward to celebrating with you on November 2-3, 2017!
