This year, the Theta Phi Alpha Foundation participated in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. Over 80 collegians and alumnae joined the SISTERHOOD SOCIETY with a minimum donation of $19.12; a total of $4643.88 was raised!
Your donations enable the Foundation to continue enhancing the Theta Phi Alpha experience for our members.
