The Story of Rose McGill

5/31/2021 - Toronto - Beta Psi -

Since 1922, Kappa has been there for members experiencing financial distress. The Foundation’s grant program began when Rose McGill, Toronto, contracted tuberculosis. Her ties to Kappa remained strong and when she became ill, her Kappa sisters were there to help. Rose, an orphan, was provided for financially through the establishment of the Rose McGill fund. After her death in 1927 the Rose McGill Fund continued, and, thanks to the Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation, helps members in need of emergency financial assistance to this day.

Today, the program gives confidential grants to Kappas in unexpected times of financial need. Read about how the Rose McGill legacy continues to support our members today.

Andrea and Clayton met in dental school at the Ohio State University, married, had two children and settled in Celina, Ohio, where Clayton opened a private dental practice. Andrea found work as a dentist, too, in a separate practice that provides dental care for mostly Medicaid-funded patients, a calling she says fits with her love for working with people.
