From our earliest days, we seek out others to accompany us on our journey. There will be many acquaintances as we travel along our path. Among them will be found some with whom we feel a special bond…a rapport to be welcomed and nurtured. There may be one or two…there may be a hundred.

 Is it any wonder then, that eight young women, away from home and family, found each other and began their journey in friendship? They stepped out on a path from Farmville, Virginia in 1898, sharing a special bond as friends who regarded each other as sisters. They reached out to others who joined them on the journey.

 Together, they established a sisterhood called Sigma Sigma Sigma. We find friends within the bounds of Tri Sigma. We regard these friends as sisters. We enter into a state of being Sisters. We are a Sisterhood.

The Tri Sigma Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Tri Sigma Sorority, supporting programs consistent with our mission, vision and values. The Foundation was formed in 1992 when the Robbie Page Memorial Fund joined with the sorority's Educational Foundation to create the Tri Sigma Foundation. Most recently in 2016, the Foundation expanded its vision of Sigma Serves Children by adding a national philanthropic partnership with March of Dimes.

Along with fundraisers and community services/philanthropies, we strive to create a strong bond of sisterhood.  The relationship of a sister is deeper than that of a friend and that is what we want every woman to feel when they join Tri-Sigma.
