Since its inception, Sigma Gamma Rho has promoted unity among women and has worked with individuals who were not members of Greek-lettered organizations. These women were organized into auxiliaries with various names until 1954, when the sorority, officially, approved the organized affiliate group and accepted the name of “Philo” (meaning Friend) as their official name.
In 1980, the Philos were organized on a national level. Since then, they have grown to represent hundreds of women on a regional level. The Philos have contributed countless hours of community service and thousands of dollars aiding Sigma Gamma Rho’s aim to enhance quality of life in every community.
