Sigma Tau Gamma was founded at East Carolina University in 1978 and was home to numerous brothers that all shared the same values and principles. After being rechartered in November of 2011, Sig Tau made its presence known by being active in the city of Greenville. From participating in street cleanups to surpassing philanthropy goals, the Delta Alpha Chapter has kept the tradition of upholding themselves to a higher standard for almost 40 years on ECU’s campus. The Delta Alpha Chapter has over 65 current active members.
A Chapter Fund is a restricted account from the Sigma Tau Gamma Foundation. In this case, the restriction is that the funds and earnings on the investment of the funds may be used only for a particular chapter, meaning that if you donate to your chapter’s fund, it may only be used for your chapter.
Chapter Funds may be used to:
- Award scholarships based on academic and leadership criteria
- Technology grants for purchase and upgrade of chapter computer technology
- Educational facility grants to the selected chapter
- Leadership education grants for participation in institutes, seminars, and conventions.
The Foundation manages the fund. This management includes fund accounting, investing, and preparing required reports for the Internal Revenue Service. The policy of the Foundation Board of Trustees is to involve chapter alumni association leaders in the creation of criteria, formation of program priorities and selection of grant recipients.
