Circle of Sisterhood

11-29

Circle of Sisterhood: 

Every sorority has their own unique philanthropy and so does The Panhellenic Association. The Panhellenic Association supports the Circle of Sisterhood by hosting events open to all Panhellenic women.

Mission: 

The Circle of Sisterhood Foundation will leverage the collective wisdom and influence of sorority women to support entities around the world that remove educational barriers for girls and women, uplifting them from poverty and oppression.

Why Circle of Sisterhood: 

“One study after another has shown that educating girls is one of the most effective ways to fight poverty. Schooling is often a precondition for girls and women to stand up against injustice, and for women to be integrated into the economy. Until women are numerate and literate, it is difficult for them to start businesses or contribute meaningfully to their economies.”
