Catch the Spirit of DREF’s Golden Anniversary

DREF Purse Charm

The year of 2017 is a golden time for the Delta Research and Educational Foundation (DREF)!  It is time to commemorate its Golden Anniversary.  Established by Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. in 1967 at its 29th National Convention held in Cincinnati, Ohio, DREF has upheld its mission to promote research and educational endeavors to support African American women and the programming of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.  The year-long commemoration, employing the theme:  “Creating Possibilities:  Then & Now—DREF: Celebrating 50 years of Giving,” will be observed through charitable giving (DREF will award special scholarships and an increased number of Community Empowerment Grants), and a special evening of entertainment is also planned to be held in Las Vegas at the 53rd National Convention of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. 

Go to the Donate Now button at the top of the homepage to make your donation and select the beautiful, commemorative purse charm as your giving incentive item. The purse charm was created by award-winning handbag designer Yanique Moore, who is a member of the DREF Board of Directors.

Donations to DREF support programming, scholarships, Community Empowerment Grantmaking, and operations.  Catch the spirit of giving…feel the power of 50!  Our goal is to engage 50,000 Deltas in supporting DREF with a $50 donation in recognition of the Foundation’s 50th anniversary. Achieving this goal could very well result in raising $2.5 million—advancing our Foundation to a higher level of philanthropy and enabling DREF to significantly increase its charitable giving to African American women and their families.


Stay tuned for ticket information on the DREF 50th Anniversary evening of entertainment in Las Vegas!
