Since its founding in 1913, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. has always been at the forefront for serving the needs of the community. With the sorority being a community service oriented organization, the Sacramento Alumnae Chapter’s Community Service Committee is responsible for researching and presenting worthwhile community service activities in which the chapter can participate.
Sacramento Alumnae Chapter works tirelessly to provide programs that uphold the sorority’s Five-Point Programmatic Thrust of Economic Development, Educational Development, International Awareness and Involvement, Physical and Mental Health, and Political Awareness and Involvement. Some of the Sacramento Alumnae’s current programs that operate under each thrust include:
- Financial Fortitude
- Support of Black-owned businesses
- Saving for my Future – Smarty Pig
International Awareness and Involvement
- The Heifer Project
- HEART Program
- Dress a Girl Around the World
Physical and Mental Health
- Healthy Lifestyles
- Breast Cancer Walk
- Go Red Campaign
- World Aids Day
Political Awareness and Involvement
- Social Action
- Delta Days at the State Capital
- Voter Education and Registration
- Bill Analysis
To implement these projects, the Ways and Means committee of the Sacramento Alumnae Chapter is responsible for planning and developing fundraising strategies to finance all chapter programs, projects and scholarships.
After all the business is conducted, the Mission of the Arts and Letters Committee is to stimulate the interest in the arts and other cultural enrichment activities. The Focus is to promote, foster, cultivate, perpetuate and preserve the Arts and Letters of African Americans in Fine Arts, Literary, and Performing Arts.
