Economic Development is one of the programs of the Five-Point Program Thrust for Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. On a national level, Financial Fortitude is a key focus of Economic Development.
National economic trends, such as unstable employment, the threat to Social Security as we know it, and the widening gap between wealth and poverty are the basis for the development of Financial Fortitude, the current Economic Development Program Initiative of Delta Sigma Theta. Financial Fortitude is a process that will help program participants to set and define goals, develop a plan to achieve them, and to put the plan into action. The process serves as a blueprint to address all aspects of personal finances.
MCAC members have been successful in fundraising efforts with the Get that Designer Bag raffle as well as providing pertinent information to the chapter concerning financial well-being and growth.
