We focus our National Philanthropic efforts around the theme, “Sigma Serves Children” specifically through the Robbie Page Memorial. Our philanthropy focuses on supporting children’s play therapy for terminally ill children. The memorial funds playrooms, libraries, and other programs for children in long term hospital care.
Five year old Robbie Page was the son of the fourth Tri Sigma National President Mary Hastings Holloway Page. Robbie passed away in 1951 at the age of 5 years old. He died of bulbar polio, a devastating disease with no cure at the time. In 1954 the Robbie Page Memorial Fund became the official philanthropy of Tri Sigma. When a cure was found for polio, the RPM Fund continued moving forward to fund cutting edge therapy called “therapeutic play.”
The Foundation helps hundreds of children annually through the RPM fund, which supports Local and National RPM grants, including training fellowships at Children’s Medical Center in Dallas and NC Children’s Hospital- UNC Chapel Hill.
As well as, Sigma Serves Children, we are happy to announce Sigma Sigma Sigma has also partnered with the March Of Dimes! Our March of Dimes partnership complements our history, mission, vision and values and will create first-hand experiences for fundraising and service.
