The Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation funds impactful programs to enhance the member experience by giving resources for Kappas to succeed at every stage of their lives and to build flourishing communities. The Foundation funds four major areas of impact crucial to Kappas:
Member education: We assist members and their communities in gaining deeper knowledge, valuable life skills, and new experiences essential to every Kappa’s development through our Kappa Edge program. This includes critical mental health and well-being education programs and support tools such as Talkspace, mental health resources on our website, and the mental health online assessment tool, which is available to members and the general community.
Scholarships: As Kappas dream big to make meaningful change in the world, we provide financial support to help members reach their potential through undergraduate and graduate need-based and merit-based scholarships as well as continuing education grants for additional career advancement. Most merit scholarships are $3,000 and most need-based scholarships are $5,000.
Financial assistance grants: As a sisterhood organization, asking for help is just as important as offering it when you can. Rose McGill Grants to lend a hand to struggling members in need when life puts them in unfortunate, sometimes devastating, situations. This includes Rose McGill Grants (confidential one-time emergency or ongoing financial assistance for initiated collegiate and alumna members who have experienced a dire personal or family catastrophe of a financial nature) and the Rose McGill Holiday Program.
History/heritage: We commit to preserving Kappa’s heritage to learn from the women who've paved the way the past 150 years by upkeeping Kappa Kappa Gamma’s archives and digital archives, maintaining The Stewart House Museum (the birthplace of our Fraternity), and continually celebrating Kappa’s rich history within our sisterhood.
