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 Brooklyn & Queens Alumnae of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. The mission of the Foundation 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. All programming endeavors are geared towards supporting the mission and increasing the positive impact in the community. The foundation primarily serves students who live in economically-challenged neighborhoods within Brooklyn and Queens.
Each Spring, Seven Roses Legacy Foundation (SRLF) selects winning essays from a candidate pool of close to 100 applicants who dare to strive for greatness. Our scholarship winners go on to attend schools like the University of Pennsylvania, Barnard College of Columbia University, Syracuse University, Morehouse College, SUNY-Buffalo and more.
Beyond scholarships, SRLF partners with local schools and community organizations to host educational programs which target students from elementary to high school age including:
Operation Big Book Bag which provides backpacks and school supplies to needy youth.
Wee Savers an educational program designed to enhance the financial literacy of our youth.
Youth Symposium which provides educational programming that address the needs of our youth such as teen pregnancy prevention; healthy living and healthy choices and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Career education.
Swim1922 / Water Palooza which is an initiative in partnership with Eta Nu Sigma Chapter, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc and USA Swimming that aims to increase swim participation and decrease drowning rates in the community. USA Swim campaign is a national recruiting effort aimed at arming parents with the information and resources they need to get their children involved in the sport for its health and safety benefits.
