Circle of Sisterhood was adopted in April 2011 as Spring Hill College Panhellenic Association's official philanthropy.
A message from the Circle of Sisterhood Foundation:
The American sorority movement was born in the 1800s as an avenue of support for women who were fighting for the right to attend college and earn an education. United as one, the founders of our fraternal organizations paved the way for countless women who would follow. Now, almost 150 years later, the network of sorority women—more than 5 million strong—is committed to following in our founders’ footsteps by raising awareness on global issues affecting girls and women. Education for women globally remains a privilege and not a right. Around the world, 70% of out- of-school youth are girls. We represent the less than 40% of the U.S. population with a college degree and the less than 7% of the educated global population. Our sisters around the world will never have the opportunities we’ve had—and continue to have— unless we help. Our founders stood together to give us these opportunities. Now it is our turn to stand together for our sisters around the world. Because numerous studies indicate education is the key to eradicating poverty, the Circle of Sisterhood Foundation will leverage the collective wisdom and influence of sorority women to provide financial support to entities that remove educational barriers for girls and women. All we ask is that you—as a sorority woman—give or raise $100 per year, and then ask every affiliated woman you know to do the same.
