Special Contributions

As tangible evidence of our commitment to excellence in education; the Pasadena Alumnae Chapter pledged, and fully paid $10,000 in support of the "Young Black Scholars" a project spearheaded by the "100 Black Men of Los Angeles, Inc." This initiative was designed to work with Black honor students throughout their high school years. This objective of our commitment to education helped to promote and instill all around excellence within our Black honor students. It is hoped that this ongoing commitment will provide students with a more competitive edge in college admissions and later in life.

The Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Pasadena Alumnae Chapter also makes substantial annual contributions to the United Negro College Fund. These are, of course, in addition to our ongoing local scholarship presentations.

In the spring of 1970, the Chapter not only completed its $500 pledge as a Golden Anniversary gift to Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, it also paid the final installment for lifetime membership in the NAACP. The plaque was presented to the Pasadena Alumnae Chapter at the Eighth Awards Cotillion.
