Girls Achieve Grapeness
In October (Domestic Violence Awareness Month) each year, SDT chapters organize events to support Girls Achieve Grapeness. We raise funds to support JWI programming through sales of our exclusive Girls Achieve Grapeness OPI purple nail polish. We have raised over $80,000 annually for JWI through this engaging fundraiser. 


Safe Smart Dating
Sigma Delta Tau partnered with JWI and Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity to develop and offer the first national program on dating abuse and sexual assault for the Greek community on college campuses. Through a series of discussions, scenarios, news stories, live text surveys and video, this groundbreaking, interactive and co-ed program helps young people define and identify dating abuse and sexual assault as well as build skills to be active bystanders at school and in their communities. 

Life$avings®: Financial Literacy for Young Women
Life$avings teaches core financial literacy to put college-age and young professional women in control of their money so they can be economically independent, grow their financial resources and fully participate in money decisions throughout their lives. Life$avings covers topics such as credit, debt, benefits and salary negotiation, and asset building for the future, and encourages participants to challenge any personal barriers hindering their own fiscal responsibility. The program has been tailored to the specific needs and interests of SDT’s collegiate women.
