Delta Theta Tau
Delta Home Special Gift Fund
Do you know a Delta Sister who struggles with her monthly expenses and has need greater than her income? Is she over the age of 60? Has she been a member of Delta Theta Tau for at least 7 years? Has she paid her Delta Home dues of $2 per year, or paid $100 in lieu of annual payments? If so, the Delta Home Program may be able to assist her with expenses such as rent, mortgage, supplemental medical insurance, and medication, just to name a few! Assistance is available to active, associate, alumnae, and members at large.
Currently, seventeen (17) Sisters are receiving assistance through the Delta Home Program. Recipients reside in Arizona, California, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Mississippi, Nevada and Oregon. Eleven (11) live in their own home or apartment and six (6) live in assisted living health care facilities or with family members. Total benefits of $108,588.12 were paid in 2017-2018 from the Delta Home Fund. Three (3) of these Sisters receive birthday and Christmas gifts only from the Special Gift Fund. Gifts disbursed from the Special Gift Fund totaled $2,100 in 2017-2018.
The Special Gift Fund is funded solely through donations from chapters and members. This fund is used for birthday and Christmas gifts, chapter and alumnae dues, GRIT subscriptions, National and Province Convention registrations, along with unexpected expenses. A donation to the Special Gift Fund is an excellent way to honor a member/officer or as a memorial to a deceased Sister.
