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.
