SIGMA LEGACY FUND
In 2000, the Gamma Pi Sigma Alumnae Chapter chartered the Sigma Legacy Fund, a not-for-profit, tax-exempt organization created to establish partnerships that enable us to create sustainable funding streams to support scholarships for deserving students and fund community service projects which target Southeast Wisconsin.
The Sigma Legacy Fund sincerely appreciates the support of all donors, no matter the size of the gift. The Sigma Legacy Fund succeeds through the generosity of friends, corporate and community supporters and people like you.
Your donation support allows us to continue this service and find new ways to support our community.

LaWana Scott Scholarship
Ms. LaWana Scott was a member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. and an active member of Gamma Pi Sigma for 13 years. She also served as Anti-Basileus and the NPHC representative. Ms. Scott was a high school business and marketing teacher who was passionate about educating her students and providing them with the tools to be successful.
