S.I.G.M.A. | Sisters Initiating Greater Motivation and Achievement
Who we are?
The S.I.G.M.A. Foundation of Georgia, Inc. (SFG) is a non-profit organization created and designed to articulate and promote the needs and goals of the youth in College Park, East Point, and Clayton County, Georgia. The non-profit was founded by members of the Zeta Alpha Sigma chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. to help further the aims of the organization through greater awareness of and commitment to the needs of the south Atlanta community.
What do we do?
The major societal impact of the foundation lies in promoting and assisting in the continuing education of the youth in the community. In its effort to remain responsive to the needs of the community in general, with a strategic focus on education in particular, we support many worthy programs including distributing school supplies to local students and schools, supporting community wellness initiatives, and donating to local mentoring programs. In addition to programming support, each April during the chapter’s anniversary, the S.I.G.M.A. Foundation of Georgia promotes an Annual Scholarship Banquet which honors community and chapter members for their excellence in serving the local population. Since its inception, the S.I.G.M.A. Foundation of Georgia has provided scholarships to students attending the following institutions: the University of Georgia, University of West Georgia, Bethune-Cookman University, Miles College, Johnson C. Smith University and Valdosta State University.
Why choose to be a sponsor?
Sponsorship opportunities offer the development of beneficial interactions between
professionals in the community, the foundation, and students. Moreover, corporate
sponsors can take an affirmative step towards encouraging and supporting diversity in the community. Additionally, corporations that become sponsors will increase their exposure and visibility to minority students who comprise the majority of our recipient population, while gaining tax benefits.
