Iota Beta Sigma, the Silicon Valley Alumnae chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., was chartered in 2000 with the vision to serve the Silicon Valley and greater San Francisco Bay Area, including  Alameda, Santa Clara and San Mateo  counties.

 

As a chapter, the members are focused on promoting healthy living and education to women and children, we believe that our slogan, "Greater Service, Greater Progress" applies not only to our work in the community, but to the betterment of the members, affiliates, and friends of our chapter. 

 

Our programming falls under our sorority's main initiative - Project Reassurance: H3 It's all About Me - Healthy Living, Healthy Lifestyles, Healthy Generations! Throughout the year, besides our normal volunteer efforts, Iota Beta Sigma hosts the following programs:

  • Operation BigBookBag - Collecting school supplies and backpacks to donate to an adopted elementary school, community center or group.

  • Hattie McDaniel Breast Cancer Awareness 

  • College Shower - Provide deserving young women with necessary supplies to start off college.

  • Youth Symposium - A day long event featuring activities and topic specific panels aimed at middle and high school aged youth.

  • Scholarships - Our annual scholarship program raises money to provide awards for graduating, college bound high school students and K12 educators.
