Philanthropy

The National Philanthropy of Sigma Psi Zeta is to combat violence against women in its varied forms. This includes, but is not, by any means, limited to the following: rape, incest, domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, exploitation, the trafficking of women and children, the abuse of migrant workers, intimidation at work, child abuse, harassment, and spousal abuse.

Through our combined individual and group efforts, we have demonstrated a commitment to education and cultural unity. Any kind of physical, emotional or mental duress constitutes violence. More a mission to educate and inform ourselves and our communities, Sigma Psi Zeta takes a preventive and proactive stance where violence against women is concerned, rather than simply provide philanthropic support.

Featured Community Service/Philanthropic Events
Helping out at From Hope to Hiroshima

Hiroshima-Nagasaki Commemorative Lantern Float for Peace at Greenlake is an annual event that we volunteer for. It was perfect weather on a lovely Friday evening as we helped with any issues that the event planners needed us to do. It's a great opportunity volunteering with FHTH, but an even better sight at the end of our shift watching Greenlake fill with glowing lanterns!

Volunteering at ARCS' auction

We are glad to have been a part of Asian Counseling and Referral Service's 40th anniversary auction event. "ACRS' mission is to promote social justice and the well-being and empowerment of Asian Pacific American (APA) individuals, families and communities by providing and advocating for innovative community-based multilingual and multicultural services.
