“I believe in the fulfillment of self and will strive to contribute my share to the progress of mankind.”
For the Sisters of Alpha Sigma Tau, these are more than words in the Sorority’s Creed; they are a way of life. Day after day, community to community, our members strive to make their world a better place. They tap into their life experiences as women and as Alpha Sigma Taus, giving back to their communities through philanthropy and hands-on service.
National Philanthropy: Women's Wellness Initiative
Alpha Sigma Tau’s National Philanthropy is the Women’s Wellness Initiative. This far-reaching philanthropy empowers members to impact women's wellness in their communities through fundraising and service projects.
The Women’s Wellness Initiative also provides opportunities for community service and philanthropy that are relevant to Alpha Sigma Tau’s mission.
Through the Initiative, members and chapters can have an impact on their local communities as well as globally, and have the independence to choose projects most relevant to them. They work directly with nonprofits in their own backyards – conducting philanthropy, service projects, and other activities that benefit women where our members live, work, and go to school.

Through the Initiative, we have an established relationship with the national nonprofit Dress for Success, which members can engage to impact women’s wellness in their communities. We are also building similar relationships with other networked nonprofits committed to this purpose.
Dress for Success is an international not-for-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire, and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. Since starting operations in 1997, Dress for Success has expanded to almost 160 cities in 27 countries. To date, Dress for Success has helped more than 1 million women work towards self-sufficiency.
With Dress for Success, the Women’s Wellness Initiative offers Alpha Sigma Tau members more opportunities for community service and philanthropy that are relevant to the Sorority’s mission and values. The relationship also allows members to have an impact by volunteering and raising funds for Dress for Success in their own communities.
