Tri Delta and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
In 1999, Tri Delta entered a partnership with St. Jude. Since then, Fraternity members have raised more than $31 million to support the mission of St. Jude and their research across the world. In July 2014, Tri Delta announced a 10-year, $60 million fundraising commitment to St. Jude – the single largest in St. Jude’s history. In recognition of this pledge, St. Jude’s short-term housing facility will be named Tri Delta Place.
