Many years ago, alumnae chapters of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. realized the importance of the prestige, goodwill and cooperation of women, who, for various reasons, were not members of any Greek letter organization. Many of these women were of the highest caliber with outstanding religious, educational, civic and social connections; women who were substantial, dependable, and who exerted the energy and willingness to be active participants in helping Sigma Gamma Rho render service to humankind and improve the community.

Local alumnae chapters of the sorority organized these women into auxiliaries with various names. It was in 1954 that Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. officially approved these organized groups and accepted “Philos” (meaning friends) as the official name for this affiliate group. The Philos have rendered and continue to render valuable service to the sorority and to the community. The qualifications for becoming a Philo are:

  • * Be at least 18 years of age
  • * Non-degreed or possess an Associate Degree

  • * Uphold high standards of excellence
  • * Remit membership fee
