During the month of November, many take time to reflect on all they are thankful for. As an organization of 141 active chapters and more than 255,000 initiated members, Kappa Kappa Gamma has much to be thankful for this holiday season.
Kappa empowers women to do meaningful things in their communities through our service model. As a result, Kappas have spent more than 277,000 service hours improving their communities and the lives of others.
This year we have installed five new chapters, initiated more than 3,000 new members since July and over the past biennium have raised more than $2.46 million for the Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation, local community organizations and our national philanthropic partner, Reading Is Fundamental. These accomplishments have given us many people to thank this holiday season.
Thank you to all who donate to the Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation—with your support we are able to provide more than $1.25 million annually in support of scholarships, Rose McGill aid, historical preservation through The Stewart House and The Heritage Museum, and educational and leadership programming for women of all ages.
We thank all who serve in our Official Family—where one is capable, many are strong. With these women at the forefront, Kappa Kappa Gamma is assured a successful, fulfilling future.
We thank all who support our chapters—your dedication to your work helps keep our sisterhood strong and growing. Your service to the communities you live in and the philanthropies you support shows the world the great things our members can achieve.
We thank all who support our associations—the energy you put in helps keep members engaged and connected with the organization. Our associations give members the ability to stay connected with their sisters and make Kappas feel at home no matter where they move.
As an organization that thrives on sisterhood, leadership and loyalty, we thank all those who help our organization grow, flourish and achieve amazing things through their participation. Kappas are the heart of this organization and your continued participation helps to keep our legacy and traditions alive.
