Kappa Delta Foundation
With the generous support of Kappa Deltas across the country, the Kappa Delta Foundation makes a difference in the lives of its members and in the lives of those in need around the world. Contributions from alumnae, collegians and friends of Kappa Delta enable the foundation to further its philanthropic efforts, providing support for the sorority’s national philanthropies, numerous local community outreach programs, as well as scholarships and educational opportunities for KD members.
The Kappa Delta Foundation provides:
- Kappa Delta Scholarships. The foundation awards over $110,000 in graduate and undergraduate scholarships to Kappa Delta sisters each year.
- Leadership Conferences. By providing funding for national and regional leadership conferences, the Kappa Delta Foundation offers members a host of opportunities to learn leadership and interpersonal skills that help them become their best in college and beyond.
