The Sigma Legacy Foundation
The Sigma Legacy Foundation – the non-profit 501(c)(3) entity and affiliate of the Kappa Sigma Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. – supports educational engagement in the St. Louis area by hosting programs and projects that strengthen our community through the development and enrichment of youth. An important component of the Foundation’s charitable service is the annual awarding of scholarships to deserving high school graduates to assist with college expenses.
We are focused on creating programs for youth development with an emphasis on mentoring, robotics, agriculture, hydroponics, legal education, scholarship, and STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). As agents of change that value innovation and learning, the Sigma Legacy Foundation accepts and values personal accountability and responsibility.
The Carver House
The Sigma Legacy Foundation is soliciting funding to restore the iconic Carver House. Our renovation budget is $175,000.00 and we are committed to working with local stakeholders on this project. Carver House was founded in 1935 as a branch of Wesley House Corporation; a 100-year old church based settlement house located in old North St. Louis, MO. The Branch originally known as Wesley House No. 2 was established to serve the rapidly growing African American population that had settled in the area. In 1943, the center was renamed George Washington Carver House in honor of the famous African American scientist and inventor.
We expect our programs to impact the community by helping youth better define their educational goals, work to achieve their goals and continuously help their community to thrive both Socially and Economically. We will continue the Legacy of the Carver House which has dedicated itself to responding to the community’s needs by providing quality programs and services that have helped thousands of our fellow citizens to reach new heights of accomplishment.
