Service & Philanthropy
Through service and fundraising for charitable organizations, Kappa Alpha Theta’s members and chapters demonstrate their commitment to spreading the widest influence for good. Each year on October 19, Thetas worldwide celebrate founder Bettie Locke Hamilton’s birthday with Day of Service. And every year, college and alumnae chapters also host fundraising events to benefit Theta’s two philanthropic partners: Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation and National Court Appointed Special Advocate/Guardian ad Litem (CASA/GAL) Association. No matter the time of year or the event, Thetas are committed to making the world a better place.
Created by Thetas for Thetas in 1960, Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation is a 501(c)(3) 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. Awarding more than $1.1 million annually, Theta Foundation stands as pillar of support for Thetas to help them reach their fullest potential and make a difference in the world.
After more than 60 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. Learn more about Theta Foundation.
