The Judy Fund
Part of Sigma Alpha Mu’s mission is to develop good citizens and well-rounded individuals. That includes giving back to the community. Sigma Alpha Mu feels that it is important to develop this good habit and live by these values while a young man is in college, cultivating a lifelong commitment to helping others. A community cannot improve without the generosity and leadership of men like members of Sigma Alpha Mu. As a fraternity, Sigma Alpha Mu prides itself on its many philanthropic efforts.
Sigma Alpha Mu’s National Philanthropy is The Judy Fund, which is part of The Alzheimer’s Association. The Judy Fund was established by a Sigma Alpha Mu member, Marshall Gelfand, in honor of his wife who lost a nine-year battle to the Alzheimer ’s disease in 2004. The money raised for the Judy Fund is used to support the research, care, and advocacy efforts by the Alzheimer’s Association.
To learn more about the Judy Fund, check out http://actionalz.org/sammies/. This website has been specifically donated to help Sigma Alpha Mu members get involved.
Last year, Sigma Alpha Mu from across the nation raised over $550,000 for the Judy Fund. We at Tau are happy to have contributed to such, and look forward to doing even more in the future.
