The KD Foundation Makes a Difference

The Mission of Kappa Delta Foundation:

"The mission of the Kappa Delta Foundation, Inc. is to secure funds for the educational, leadership and charitable purposes of Kappa Delta Sorority."

With the generous support of Kappa Deltas across the country, the Kappa Delta Foundation makes a difference in the lives of its members and in the lives of those less fortunate. Contributions from alumnae, collegians and friends of Kappa Delta enable the foundation to further its philanthropic efforts, providing support for the sorority’s four national philanthropies, numerous local community outreach programs, as well as fund scholarships and educational opportunities for KD members.

Your support to the Kappa Delta Foundation make possible:
