As Tri Delta’s, we believe in giving back to the community and to those in need. We love dedicating our time to raising funds to help the children at our national philanthropic partner, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Located in Memphis, Tennessee, this amazing organization provides treatment to children with some of the rarest forms of childhood cancer and other life threatening illnesses. Thanks to the support that Tri Delta along with other sponsors provide nationally to St. Jude, families are never turned away for their inability to pay and can focus on providing love and support to their children.
In 2006, Tri Delta’s Executive Office committed our chapters to raising $10 million in 10 years to help build a Patient Care Floor in the new St. Jude Chili’s Care Center. Tri Delta met this goal in only 4 years, 6 years ahead of schedule! Because of this success, Tri Delta made a new pledge in July 2010 to raise $15 million in five years to name the Specialty Clinic located in the Patient Care Center at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. We successfully raised $15 million in just 3.5 years! This year, Tri Delta was named St. Jude's Partner of the Year and Tri Delta also revealed our new commitment of raising $60 million in 10 years to name Tri Delta Place, the on-campus, short-term housing facility at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. This is by far the largest single commitment by any St. Jude partner.
We at Tri Delta firmly believe what St.Jude’s founder Danny Thomas once said, “No child should die in the dawn of life”. Tri Delta has continuously broken barriers and met each of our goals years ahead of schedule showing our passion and commitment to hopefully one day be able to eradicate childhood cancer.
