Every day, thoughtful sisters like you choose to support their sisters through donations to Tri Delta’s Foundation. As one of Tri Delta’s most powerful giving vehicles, an unrestricted gift allows the Foundation to meet our members’ greatest needs. Or, you may choose to direct your dollars toward a specific purpose or need, based on your passion, through a restricted gift to support scholarships, emergency assistance or transformational programs.
Stars & Crescent Society
Stars & Crescent Society members are loyal and generous donors who invest in our sisterhood with gifts of $1,000 or more to Tri Delta’s Annual Fund in a fiscal year. By joining the Stars & Crescent Society, you are providing essential support for educational programming, scholarship and leadership development. You can join our Stars & Crescent Society with a one-time donation, with multiple donations or by making a recurring donation of $84 a month. We look forward to welcoming you to this prestigious circle of kind sisters. To see a list of our 2020-2021 Stars & Crescent Society members click here.
A bequest (leaving a gift through your will) is the most common way to make a legacy gift that makes a difference beyond your lifetime. To do so, simply list the Delta Delta Delta Foundation as a beneficiary in your will or estate plan. We love to recognize those who have taken this thoughtful and meaningful step so please let us know of your intentions by filling out this form, so we can recognize you as a member of our Heritage Society.
To help you get started, we invite you to use FreeWill, an online estate planning service that makes it cost-free to create a legal will, and include the necessary language to support Tri Delta with a bequest in your plans. It can also be used in tandem with an attorney. Click here to start your free will and join our Heritage Society.
Tri Delta wants to provide our members with the resources they need for a lifetime of personal success. We’re hopeful that FreeWill makes it easier and more accessible for our sisters to take this bold, important step into their futures, and define their legacy to help future generations of Tri Delta women live, learn, and lead with Purpose.
