To commemorate their 25th anniversary, the members of the spring 1994 line of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. – Eta Kappa Chapter reportedly donated $160,000 to the HBCU. 

The gift will go toward the Spelman Technology Innovation Fund, which aims to increase access to emerging technology for students and faculty.

“To whom much is given — much is expected,” the group said in a statement. “Spelman has given so much to her students since its founding in 1881, and this group of determined and visionary women wants to motivate others to take a leap of faith and make a 'choice to change the world.’”

Nearly all 60 sorority sisters took a trip to the campus to present the check. They said they hope their donation will inspire others to pay it forward.
