Sigma Kappa's Philanthropic Efforts

The Zeta Mu chapter at UC San Diego is holding our main philanthropic event on February 21st, 2018! Please help us in achieving our fundraising goal and keep reading to learn more about our philanthropy that we hold close to our hearts. 

For more than 50 years, the Sigma Kappa Foundation has supported Sigma Kappa Sorority. Our Foundation plays a crucial role in the growth and success of Sigma Kappa, providing the lifeblood of financial resources to keep our Sorority vital and healthy. The mission of the Sigma Kappa Foundation is to create and fund leadership, scholarship and philanthropic initiatives that reflect the values and spirit of Sigma Kappa Sorority. One philanthropic initiative that our Zeta Mu chapter at UC San Diego focuses on is Alzheimer's research.

Alzheimer’s disease is a growing epidemic with someone in the United States developing it every 66 seconds and is the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death. This is why Sigma Kappa is committed to putting an end to Alzheimer’s by creating a major funding stream to the national Alzheimer’s Association for research to find a cure.

Through Alzheimer’s disease and gerontology-related research grants from the Sigma Kappa Foundation, Sigma Kappa has become one of the nation’s leading private contributors to Alzheimer’s disease prevention, research and treatment efforts. Since 1989, the Sigma Kappa Foundation has granted more than $3 million in research grants including the lead gift of $1 million for the Women's Alzheimer’s Research Initiative. The gift funds clinical research focused on women, as well as studies led by female researchers who are working to advance Alzheimer's and dementia science.

Thank you for helping us in our fight against Alzheimer's. #MemoriesMatter #EndAlz
