This spring, Tri Delta has dedicated a special week to celebrating our beloved volunteers for all they do to make a difference in the lives of our members and the future of our organization. We invite you to celebrate with us this April 7-13, 2019, for #NationalVolunteerWeek! Send a heartfelt note, make a call or show your gratitude in person for the volunteers who have made a difference in your Tri Delta experience.
Since Tri Delta’s founding in 1888, our members have been called by our Purpose to “assist members in every possible way.” This commitment shines especially bright through the dedication of our 3,000+ volunteers who render willing service to Tri Delta each and every day.
The 2018 Volunteer Engagement Survey illustrated that Tri Delta volunteers give a staggering $19,000,000 worth of annual volunteer hours to our organization. The value of this gift, however, is priceless as our volunteers use their time to empower our members to be brave, bold and kind as they develop their unique talents and make their communities and our world a better place.
As part of the volunteer experience in Tri Delta, our volunteers’ ability to make a difference in the lives of Tri Delta members is what’s most meaningful. When asked what their favorite part of volunteering is, one volunteer shared, “knowing that I am giving back in a meaningful way and watching the progress of the collegians I serve and the innovation I contribute to the national organization.” And another raved, “energizing an active alumnae chapter. We started the year with 41 dues-paying members and we now have 61. I love to see
the chapter grow and involve more alumnae members who have never been actively involved.” The ability of our volunteers to evoke such passion and investment for Tri Delta in our more than 236,000 members is astounding, and we know that their support and professionalism in turn inspires member confidence in Tri Delta.
Volunteer appreciation continues to be an area of focus for Tri Delta. Fraternity President Kimberlee Di Fede Sullivan, Pepperdine, shares “Our volunteers are invaluable in helping keep our Purpose alive for generations to come.”
We are excited to have launched our new Volunteer Appreciation Plan, an annual roadmap to ensure our volunteers receive intentional Delta Love throughout the year. Additional volunteer initiatives and trainings are also on the horizon to ensure a volunteer environment that attracts, retains and recognizes our volunteers’ selfless service. To our current volunteers, thank you for the time and talent you continue to offer Tri Delta. It is because of you that we continue to see such positive growth and development in Tri Delta’s chapters and members. Know today and always that you are the heart of our organization.
