Tri Delta Mothers' Club
Houston Alumnae Panhellenic
Tri Delta Foundation
The purpose of the Tri Delta Mothers' Club of Houston is to support its members' Tri Delta daughters, and to encourage and foster friendships among the club's members. The Mothers' Club has a lot of fun events with over 240+ Tri Delta mothers in the Houston area.
The Mothers' Club holds a spring scholarship luncheon each year to raise money to provide scholarship funds for active Tri Delta collegiate members. The applicant must be an active Tri Delta collegian, a daughter of a dues paying member of the Tri Delta Mothers' Club of Houston, at least a sophomore, and have a combined GPA of 3.0 or better for the fall and spring term of the previous year. Scholarships are merit based and are awarded each year at the December Pine Party sponsored by the Houston Tri Delta Alumnae Chapter.
The Houston Alumnae Panhellenic Association promotes fraternity life through service to the community and the deep friendship of individual sorority and Panhellenic life.
The Delta Delta Delta Foundation was founded in 1988, during Tri Delta's Centennial Anniversary Year. Over the past 27 years, the Tri Delta Foundation has helped fulfill Tri Delta's Purpose of "assisting its members in every possible way." By raising and awarding funds to provide undergraduate and graduate scholarships, helping members in dire financial need, and supporting the Fraternity's innovative educational programs, the Foundation enables our members live, learn, and lead.. with Purpose, for a lifetime!
Ways to Give
There are many opportunities for Tri Deltas (both individually and as alumnae chapters or groups) to support the Foundation's work on behalf of our sisterhood.
Consider making donations to the Foundation in memory of deceased sisters, in honor of retiring chapter officers, or in honor of golden and diamond circle members. Small but special gifts like these do make a difference. Everyone remembered in this way receives a card from the Foundation which makes the gift meaningful.
The Crescent Fund
In keeping with the Foundation’s mission to “assist its members in every possible way,” the Crescent Fund and Collegiate Crescent Fund provide emergency assistance to Tri Deltas facing unforeseen financial crisis — such as unexpected medical bills, a job loss or natural disaster. By providing sisters in need with a financial grant, the Foundation ensures that Tri Delta’s members are taken care of throughout their lives.
The Tri Delta Foundation has more than 70 undergraduate and graduate scholarships available to members, and each year dozens of outstanding Tri Delta sisters are awarded these funds to assist them in their educational journey. By supporting the academic pursuits of its members, the Foundation is fulfilling Tri Delta’s Purpose of “broadening the moral and intellectual life.”
The Houston Alumnae Chapter Graduate Fellowship
The Houston Alumnae Chapter has a one-year graduate-level scholarship available through the Tri Delta Foundation to provide financial assistance to graduate students. The applicant must be a Tri Delta member enrolled in an accredited graduate program full-time whose permanent residence is in Houston, Texas. Candidates are selected based on academic merit as well as chapter and campus or community activities.
The Foundation provides funding for educational initiatives designed to enhance members’ lives and help them develop qualities of unselfish leadership. In the past, these Foundation-funded programs have included:
Trip to Washington, D.C. where Tri Delta collegiate members lobby on Capitol Hill on behalf of legislation that advances the fraternity and sorority experience and higher education
Educational tracks at Tri Delta’s national Convention and Leadership Conferences, which provide leadership, personal and professional development
Scholarships for collegiate members to attend the Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute (UIFI), a five-day leadership institute for fraternity and sorority members
BodyImage3D Program, a chapter-based program that educates members on positive body image and self-esteem through a focus on healthy mind, body and spirit
Behind Happy Faces, a unique and engaging mental health curriculum that uses educational videos and peer-led discussions to change the conversation around mental health and mental illness and is available for all 141 collegiate chapters.
