“I believe in the fulfillment of self and will strive to contribute my share to the progress of mankind.”
For the Sisters of Alpha Sigma Tau, these are more than words in the Sorority’s Creed; they are a way of life. Day after day, community to community, our members strive to make their world a better place. They tap into their life experiences as women and as Alpha Sigma Taus, giving back to their communities through philanthropy and hands-on service.
National Philanthropy: Women's Wellness Initiative
Alpha Sigma Tau’s National Philanthropy is the Women’s Wellness Initiative. This far-reaching philanthropy empowers members to impact women's wellness in their communities through fundraising and service projects.
The Women’s Wellness Initiative also provides opportunities for community service and philanthropy that are relevant to Alpha Sigma Tau’s mission.
Through the Initiative, members and chapters can have an impact on their local communities as well as globally, and have the independence to choose projects most relevant to them. They work directly with nonprofits in their own backyards – conducting philanthropy, service projects, and other activities that benefit women where our members live, work, and go to school.

Focus on Wellness
The mission of Alpha Sigma Tau is to invest in women by instilling the skills necessary to navigate life and inspire members to enrich their own lives and the lives of others. With this mission in mind, Alpha Sigma Tau is proud to partner with the National Wellness Institute to provide the women's wellness initiative. Developed by their co-founder, Dr. Bill Hettler, the Institute's Wellness Wheel offers six dimensions of wellness.
Emotional: Have a positive attitude, high self-esteem, a strong sense of self, and the ability to recognize and share a wide range of feelings with others in a constructive way.
Intellectual: Be open to new ideas. Be creative, think critically, and seek out new challenges.
Occupational: Seek to have a career that is interesting, enjoyable, meaningful, and that contributes to the larger society.
Spiritual: Find meaning in life events, demonstrate individual purpose, and live a life that reflects your values and beliefs.
Physical: Take care of your body for optimal health and functioning.
Social: Make willful choices to enhance personal relationships and important friendships, and do your part to build a better community.
The purpose of the women's wellness initiative is to enhance the wellness of Alpha Sigma Tau members and empower them to improve women's wellness in their communities through service projects and philanthropic efforts.
