Philanthropy & Service Programs

Inspiring individuals. Impacting the World.

As outlined in our Mission, Theta Delta Sigma “supports the advancement of men and women through… service to the community." Since our founding, Theta Delta Sigma has maintained a commitment to service and has been prompted to develop innovative programs that enhance the communities we serve. This dedication continues to be one of the highlights of our organization and the impact on our communities is powerful. 

Theta Delta Sigma works hard to instill in our membership the sense of dedication and commitment through serving and advocating for our communities. Because of the diverse interest of our members, Theta Delta Sigma has purposely decided not to select a specific charitable organization for our philanthopic endeavors but to provide programmatic thrusts that guide the efforts of our chapters. Through these national initiatives, our members understand the importance of citizenship and become better members of our global society. As our membership increases we plan to only increasingly do more for our community. We believe that Theta Delta Sigma Society has one of the strongest and most intense service programs of any comparable organization.


Theta Delta Sigma has selected disadvantaged youth as its public service focus. By providing only a public service focus, each chapter and member could support national efforts as they deem fit. Therefore, members of Theta Delta Sigma are involved in a multitude of organizations and causes that support Theta Delta Sigma's public service focus, disadvantaged youth.  Our Founders believed that, by providing aid and assistance to disadvantaged youth, we would be able to empower the youth to do great things and to ultimately make a positive impact on the future.

G.P.S. InitiativeSM

Through the Theta Delta Sigma Global Philanthropic Service (G.P.S.) Initiative, our members are able to make an international impact. Annually, each chapter shall select an international cause and/or charitable organization in which they can dedicate their major fundraising effort. Some chapters may prefer to commit to a cause/organization for multiple years to make the greatest impact.

Additionally, if the institution sponsors international alternative break program, Theta Delta Sigma collegiate members are encouraged to participate to have a unique service experience. Siblings that are selected to go on institution-sponsored trips may be eligible to request financial assistance from Theta Delta Sigma Society, Inc. to help with costs.
