Kappa Delta Philanthropy
Kappa Deltas are inspired to act. Kappa Delta makes a difference not only in its members’ lives, but also in the lives of women and children around the world. We take great pride in our efforts to strengthen community service initiatives that build confidence in those around us.
Helping build girls of courage, confidence and character.
In 1998, Kappa Delta Sorority welcomed Girl Scouts of the USA as one of its national philanthropies. Through this incredible partnership, Kappa Delta members make a difference in more than 14,000 girls each year across the country. Kappa Delta is proud to help Girl Scouts “build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.” Kappa Deltas serve as mentors and volunteers, reinforcing our common values of honesty, integrity, friendship and leadership. Collegiate and alumnae chapters host confidence-building programs, educational events, campus tours and other activities with Girl Scouts in their communities. Further, the Kappa Delta Foundation contributes annually to the Girl Scout Gold Award program, providing scholarships to Gold Award Girl Scouts, the highest recognition in Girl Scouting.
Help prevent child abuse.
Since 1981, Kappa Delta has been a proud supporter of Prevent Child Abuse America, an organization founded by the late Donna Stone, one of our own Kappa Delta sisters. To date, Kappa Delta has donated more than $29 million to prevent child abuse in our country. Thousands of KDs in hundreds of communities nationwide host Shamrock events every year to raise money for national and local child abuse prevention efforts. Events are as varied and creative as the groups that sponsor them. Golf and softball tournaments, fun runs, chili cook-offs, war-of-the wings contests, spaghetti dinners, silent auctions, fashion shows and paintball tournaments are just a few of the fundraisers held by collegiate and alumnae chapters. We encourage you to participate in local Shamrock events to join Kappa Delta in strengthening families and improving the lives of children because there’s nothing that destroys a child’s confidence more than abuse.
