This year marks 20 years of partnership between Tri Delta and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, as they lead the way in changing the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Since Tri Delta first adopted St. Jude as its national philanthropic partner in 1999, the organization has raised more than $68 million to support the hospital’s mission: Finding cures. Saving children.® Partnerships like this help ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
In 2014, Tri Delta committed to raising $60 million in 10 years for St. Jude, which is the single largest commitment by a St. Jude partner since the hospital opened more than 50 years ago. In honor of this momentous pledge, the hospital recognized Tri Delta on the St. Jude campus with the naming of its short-term housing facility, Tri Delta Place. The organization has already met more than half of this commitment in just five years, with $41 million raised toward the $60 million goal.
Tri Delta members’ passion to raise funds and awareness for St. Jude is regularly displayed nationwide through programs like its Sincerely Yours letter-writing campaign, participation in the St. Jude Walk/Run, involvement in local galas and much more.
