MissionBoard of Directors | Staff | Contact Us

The Sigma Theta Tau International Foundation for Nursing supports the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) through active fundraising and conscientious stewardship.

We protect the permanent fund assets that support STTI’s research grants program, leadership education grants, membership subsidies and emerging STTI programs. The permanent funds increase in value through a combination of donations and investment return.

In order to maintain a degree of protection for the assets of STTI and as part of an overall risk-management program, the Sigma Theta Tau International Foundation for Nursing (Foundation) was established in 1996 as a separate legal, tax exempt 501 c (3) organization, EIN# 35-1908863.
