Kappa Alpha Theta raises money for The Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation and the Friendship Fund, in addition to our two main philanthropic events

Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation

Theta_foundationFounded in 1960, Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation is a charitable and educational tax-exempt organization. Theta Foundation’s mission is to secure and manage resources for the educational, leadership, and philanthropic programs of the Fraternity and for the scholastic, professional, and service pursuits of its members to help them reach their fullest potential and make a difference in the world. Awarding more than $1 million annually, Theta Foundation stands as pillar of support for Thetas and a partner in the Fraternity’s educational and philanthropic efforts. Created by Thetas for Thetas, Theta Foundation is dedicated to partnering with individuals and college and alumnae chapters for fundraising efforts to support Thetas with scholarships, non-degree educational and leadership grants, and the Fraternity’s educational and leadership programs. Theta Foundation provides resources to individual members and chapters for:

  • Fundraising efforts to support Theta Foundation’s programs.
  • Opportunities to contribute to Theta Foundation’s quarterly grants to National CASA.
  • Establishing endowed scholarships and grants to benefit members.
  • Applying for Theta Foundation scholarships and grants.

After more than 50 years, Theta Foundation remains committed to partnering with Theta women and chapters to support the Fraternity’s ideals of highest scholarship, widest influence for good, and love. For more information, please visit www.kappaalphathetafoundation.org

Friendship Fund

friendship fund logo_RGBSince it was established in 1926, the Friendship Fund has been a tangible demonstration of the love and concern we feel for one another. It is based on a beautiful, timeless idea—sisters reaching out to sisters. The Friendship Fund provides gifts to Thetas experiencing extreme financial hardship due to serious or terminal illness, job loss, natural disaster, and other devastating occurrences. One very important aspect of the Fund is the secrecy surrounding the giving of gifts. Two members write on the behalf of a sister, and the Friendship Fund committee determines the award amount. The requesters remain anonymous, and all records are confidential.

Through the Friendship Fund, we reaffirm our belief that Kappa Alpha Theta is larger than ourselves and that what we give to one another comes full circle.

Traditionally, contributions to the Friendship Fund are made through Founders Day gifts, but donations are welcome at any time during the year. The suggested contribution is $1 for each year of membership. Please send a check written to “Kappa Alpha Theta Fraternity” to:

Kappa Alpha Theta 8740 Founders Rd. Indianapolis, IN 46268 attn.: Friendship Fund

Note that donations are not tax-deductible.
