The Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority National Education Fund, Inc. (NEF) seeks to remove barriers for those who are most deserving by providing access to scholarships, leadership development and community enhancement programs. NEF is dedicated to helping each person achieve his or her dreams by opening the doors to the future. The mission of the National Education Fund, Inc. is to 1) Provide scholarship aid to students with financial need from all backgrounds, and 2) Conduct educational programs, workshops, symposiums, and forums that enhance quality of life.
SPEAR’s mission is to promote social, civic, cultural, economic, and educational progress for vulnerable or at-risk families and communities. The mission is fulfilled through community service, public education, advocacy, and social science research. SPEAR provides fiscal sponsorship, increasing the availability of resources to local Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. chapters and community-based organizations (CBOs). This is so they can design and implement effective community service, public education, advocacy and social science research programs – to reduce poverty and improve quality of life for minorities, women and children.
G.O.L.D.E.N. Charitable Foundation seeks to mobilize the sorors and affiliates of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., their families, and members of their communities to promote public service, a cornerstone of the organization since its inception in 1922 at Butler University in Indianapolis, IN. The Sorority’s upcoming Centennial Celebration in 2022 offers sorors and affiliates a chance to build on the organization’s legacy and its commitment to assist women, children, and families in underserved communities.
