About the Foundation

The Lambda Upsilon Sigma Charitable & Educational Foundation (LUSCEF) serves as the charitable arm of the Lambda Upsilon Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. Established in 2017, LUSCEF is a 501(c)(3) organization and is the primary funder of Lambda Upsilon Sigma’s service programs which focus on youth empowerment, health and wellness, and educational enrichment. LUSCEF also provides scholarships to deserving and exemplary college-bound high school seniors and continuing college students in North Texas.


The Lambda Upsilon Sigma Alumnae Chapter was established in 2013 to serve Collin County located in the suburban communities north of Dallas. Since its chartering, Lambda Upsilon Sigma has worked tirelessly to impact its service area through implementation of the Sorority's national programs and spearheading local initiatives to address additional issues that specifically impact Collin County.  The Chapter has contributed more than 10,000 hours of service, awarded nearly $35,000 in scholarships, and bestowed more than $36,000 in monetary and in-kind donations to local charities since the chapter’s inception. 

Lambda Upsilon Sigma has been recognized at a local, regional, and national level for its efforts in exemplifying the Sorority’s slogan, “Greater Service, Greater Progress”, garnering awards and recognition internally and externally.
