The Minneapolis-St. Paul Alumnae chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. partners with community organizations to help individuals understand all aspects of financial planning and money management. We build educational elements around economic development with our internal programs to assist youth and adults. This is also further enhanced through supporting or regional and national initiatives.

The Minneapolis-St. Paul Alumnae Chapter participates in two of the Sorority’s signature Economic Development programs, dfree, and the billion d$llar challenge. dfree is designed to empower individuals to live debt free. dfree™ living means No Debt, No Deficits, No Delinquencies. The chapter held its first community dfree event in February 2018. In addition to introducing the twelve-week curriculum, representatives in the areas of finance, insurance, real estate, and tax planning were on hand to address individual concerns. A second event is scheduled for November 3, 2018.
The chapter also participates in the billion d&llar challenge. The billion d$llar challenge is a national initiative and free resource with the objective of leading families to collectively pay down $1 billion dollars in consumer debt. The billion d$llar Challenge encourages individuals and groups to set debt reduction goals and support one another to reach them. During the 2017-18 sorority year the Minneapolis-St. Paul Alumnae sorors collectively paid down over $574,000 in consumer debt.
