Economic stability is a key element in creating and maintaining strong communities. To address the need for economic development, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., put forth Financial Fortitude, a process specifically designed to promote understanding of all aspects of the financial system, including but not limited to, budgeting, homeownership, personal wealth management, entrepreneurship, and the steps to financial freedom.

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 bases for
the development of Financial Fortitude, the current Economic Development Program Initiative of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. 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.
The Financial Fortitude initiative is comprised of ten components and provides a collaboration of information from the FDIC, the National Endowment for Financial Education and other well-known financial institutions. The initiative help members of the sorority spread financial education throughout their local communities.
