Tri Delta raises the most money of any national Greek Organization for its cause. Since October 1999, Tri Delta has been proud to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. St. Jude’s mission is to find cures for children with catastrophic diseases, and it ensures that no child is denied treatment because of race, religion, or ability to pay. Tri Delta's recently reached its goal to raise $15 million in 5 years. However, we exceeded expectations, as always, and raised the money in only 3.5 years!
Stacks for St Jude-Charity Brunch
The Stanford Omega chapter is excited to be a part of this effort. To pursue this goal, we raise awareness and host events each quarter, like our Charity Brunch this winter! Last year we raised $26,658 - more than any Tri Delta Chapter in California! We also won the Stanford Greek Philanthropy Award for raising the most money and awareness amongst all of the Stanford Greek organizations. Though these are only indicators of our commitment to the children of St. Jude, we are really excited that this has been recognized within the community, and are looking forward to continuing our legacy of philanthropy success!
There are a lot more ways our sisters get involved. We participate strongly in the Greek competition at Dance Marathon, Sigma Chi's Derby Days, and teamed up with Stanford Athletics to fundraise while cheering for Stanford! It is very important to support other forms of philanthropy on campus in addition to our own.
Philanthropy is a big part of Stanford Tri Delta - so we encourage you to scroll through our links, contact us with questions, and check out our various social media sites to see us in action!
Delta at Dance Marathon
Every fall quarter, Stanford Tri Delta hosts the Delta House of Pancakes, also known as DHOP, on the Row. The Deltas serve pancakes late into the night to those on campus who are out and about as a way to raise money and awareness for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. This year, DHOP was hosted on the Sigma Chi front lawn and was a huge success!
Stanford Tri Delta hosts our charity brunch, Stacks for St. Jude, during winter quarter. The entire campus, along with the surrounding community, is invited to join the Deltas in our lovely home for a warm and delicious brunch of pancake, eggs, bagels, coffee, and much more! The proceeds from the event go towards funding for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital! This year, our girls raised over $3,000 for St. Jude during this event, with sponsorships from Starbucks, Immersion, SoulCycle, Pinkberry, and many more!
Delta House of Pancakes
While the sisters of Stanford Tridelta passionately devote themselves to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital throughout the year, they also find ways to get involved with other philanthropic pursuits on and off campus. Every year, many Deltas organize, host and attend Stanford Dance Marathon, which inspires and educates the community about Partners in Health Rwanda, an organization that strives to provide preferential health care to people all around the world.
