THE NEXT GENERATION
Help us celebrate the class of 2021! Today's seniors have faced numerous challenges as the COVID-19 pandemic altered their college experience and transition to post-graduate life. By supporting a senior, you can help us show the power of sisterhood and welcome today's seniors into alumnae life with the gift of paying their first year of alumnae dues.
A contribution of $25 will cover one senior's first year of Loyal Sister dues. Join us today and help us celebrate all 1,500 graduating seniors!
Frequently Asked Questions
What are Loyal Sister Dues and what do they cover?
The Loyal Sister program is a special program for all Phi Sigma Sigma alumnae to continue their lifelong support of our Fraternity and its operations through an annual dues payment. This includes daily operations of Phi Sigma Sigma Headquarters, our staff and programs including:
- Collegiate leadership academy and institutes for chapter officers
- Advisor training and education
- Phi Program (new member education program)
- Recruitment support
- Detour program (our online sisterhood experience during COVID-19 interruptions)
- Diversity, equity and inclusion programming
As a dedicated Phi Sigma Sigma sister, you can help us shape the Phi Sigma Sigma experience for future generations of sisters. As we are perpetually in search of providing the premier membership experience for today's sisters, we need your assistance in mobilizing progress by investing in our future.
Is my contribution tax deductible?
Loyal Sister payments are not a tax-deductible donation. Unlike a donation to the Phi Sigma Sigma Foundation, Loyal Sister dues and the Support-a-Senior program contribute funds to the Fraternity to help underwrite programming, chapter support and daily operations of Phi Sigma Sigma Headquarters.
How can I make a contribution?
You can make a contribution through our CrowdChange campaign or on Venmo.
To make a payment on CrowdChange, click here and select your chapter as your team. In order to maximize the generosity of our sisters, CrowdChange automatically includes the processing fees at checkout. You can choose to opt out of these fees on CrowdChange.
We are excited to pilot Venmo for business as a part of this campaign. You can make a contribution to @PhiSigmaSigma directly on Venmo. Don't see business accounts? Make sure you have the latest update of the app. When making a Venmo payment, please include your full name (including maiden name if applicable), chapter and support-a-senior.
Can I sponsor more than one senior?
Yes! A contribution of $25 will sponsor one senior, but you are welcome to make any contribution. Partial sponsorships will be combined to help us meet our goal of sponsoring all of our spring 2021 graduates.
What are the benefits of being a Loyal Sister?
Alumnae are asked to pay their annual Loyal Sister dues to remain in good standing, which is required to be an active volunteer or vote at Convention. As a Loyal Sister, you will also receive first access to special alumnae programming.
This is also a direct way to support the perpetuity of Phi Sigma Sigma and help our sisterhood continue to grow and evolve for the next generation of sisters. By gifting a year of Loyal Sister dues to a graduating senior, you are helping start this habit for the future and showing her that Phi Sigma Sigma continues long beyond graduation.
My chapter is no longer active, can I still participate?
Yes, our goal is to show our graduating seniors the support of Phi Sigma Sigma as a whole. By gifting a year of Loyal Sister dues to senior, you are demonstrating the bond of sisterhood that extends beyond our chapters to our larger pyramid.
We have created the CrowdChange pages by chapter to help track chapter affiliation of all of our generous sisters.
