From seven young teachers, Sigma Gamma Rho has become an international organization comprised of women from every profession. Sigma Gamma Rho offers its members opportunities to develop their unique leadership training and involvement in sorority activities and programs. Sorority activities provide an atmosphere to develop friendships and connect with global network of professional contacts, which last and provide invaluable support, sisterly love and career assistance for life.
Founded in 2005, the Seven Roses Legacy Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that serves as the charitable arm of the Eta Nu Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. The mission of the organization is to serve the Brooklyn and Queens communities in New York City by empowering youth to expand their cultural and social horizons, improve their financial literacy, and pursue higher education opportunities. The foundation primarily serves students who live in economically-challenged neighborhoods within Brooklyn and Queens.
Since Eta Nu Sigma's chartering in 1991, some of the chapter's service activities have included its Wee Savers program, which provides financial workshops to youth throughout Brooklyn, Operation Big Book Bag, during which the chapter donates hundreds of dollars worth of school supplies to under-privileged grade schoolers, and annual participation in New York Cares Day.
