As a long-time member of the Tri Delta Foundation Crescent Fund Committee, Dr. Fay Reifsnyder Biles, Duke, reviewed numerous applications for Crescent Fund assistance, each a heart-rending plea for help. "I was so thankful that the Tri Delta Foundation has made grants available for Tri Deltas in dire need." She continued, "When we were Tri Deltas in college . . . we were convinced our lives would be filled with successful ventures, happiness, good health, and a happy marriage, if that's what we desired. Unfortunately . . . some of our sister's lives have included severe struggles with poor health, loss of financial stability and problems related to divorce to name just a few. For many, the grant from the Tri Delta Foundation is a real lifesaver.
"I would like every Tri Delta to understand that there are sisters in dire need who need our help, and that the Foundation is there to provide such help. Your contributions to the Foundation support our sisterhood and give back to the many sisters—collegians and alumnae— who need us."
Gifts to the Foundation are used to "help our sisters in every possible way." Every gift, large or small, is a gesture of Delta love. When you add your gift to those of your sisters, you build a resource that not only benefits sisters in need of help, but also creates scholarship and leadership programs that keep Tri Delta strong. Please make or add your gift soon.
Dr. Fay Reifsnyder Biles was named a Tri Delta Woman of Achievement in 2002.
