What is the Involvement of my Chapter’s Alumni Association?
If your chapter has an active alumni association, Foundation policy facilitates the active involvement of its officers with the direction of scholarships and grants. If your chapter does not have an active alumni association, a committee of dedicated Foundation Trustees will direct scholarships and grants for your chapter. If your college chapter is not active, your gifts may support undergraduate leadership development in chapters with the greatest need. Your Foundation trustees are committed to the support and development of active alumni associations. Please contact our Sigma Tau Gamma headquarters to access guidance and support.
