Rose McGill Aid

Help From a Sister

Rose McGill Homepage

Most of us make it to college without knowing much about hardship. And if fortune smiles, we likely won’t face it there either. But somewhere along the way we’ll know someone who is facing difficult times. We’ll wonder how we can help. After all, they are a Kappa sister.

We’re connected even if our plans are interrupted.

For this reason we created Rose McGill Aid. Named for a young woman who experienced financial crisis and funded to this day by our Foundation, Rose McGill Aid provides confidential assistance to deserving Kappas in an unexpected time of need. Kappa members may refer others or request aid on their own behalf.

If you think Rose McGill Aid might be part of solving a problem for you or another Kappa, apply here.
