National Charities


It’s what we’re all about! Sigma Beta Sorority is passionate about its dedication to charity projects. Our biggest impact is accomplished through our National Charity Grants. Throughout the year, Sigma Beta sisters raise funds and contribute donations to the National Charity Fund. At our National Convention, charity projects are selected to receive large cash grants to fund causes for disease research, community support services and other worthy causes. Since its inception, Sigma Beta has awarded over $1,000,000 to a broad variety of projects. Also, we offer the Sophia Maier Johnston Memorial Scholarship to disabled college students to pursue their educational goals. This scholarship is a fitting tribute to our Founder who lived with a disability.
