Kappa Kappa Gamma alumnae meet many women who would like to make a difference. You could very well help us achieve our objectives. After all, is there anyone who wouldn’t want to contribute to a better world?
Reading is Fundamental is supported by the Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation that was founded in 1966 and the organization is one of the country’s leading voices for the enhancement of children’s literacy.
The organization addresses America’s current alarming literacy crisis through quality content, strong leadership, and an engaged and active community. Service to others will change lives — even sometimes our own.
The Foundation plays a significant role when it comes to experiencing the KKG membership as it plays an important role on campus, in the organization members’ hometowns, and all across the world through the efforts that the women put in.
KKG encourages its members to support and address causes and issues that are close to the requirements and needs in their respective communities. KKG members are friends for life and provide empowerment and leadership and encourage social entrepreneurship in order to achieve things that really matter in their communities.
KKG has partnered with “Reading Is Fundamental” as this organization is helping underprivileged and underserved children kids to discover the pleasure and joy of reading in general and books in particular.
But Kappa Kappa Gamma doesn’t stop here. See also this KKG-UVA post. Sometimes, KKG’s members are in need as well and that’s where the Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation comes in, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that was established to serve the needs of its own members.
The organization offers scholarships when needed to support young women in their efforts to complete their education and there are also emergency grants when members go through times of crisis. The KKG Foundation helps Kappas when and where they need help most.
Both in the communities of its members and on an international scope, Kappa Kappa Gamma members are rolling up their sleeves and are determined to make an important difference in many people’s lives.
