Grants build confidence and inspire action.
Through donations from generous members and friends, the Kappa Delta Foundation is able to provide a number of grants that support the altruistic mission of the sorority.
Confidence U Grants
The Kappa Delta Foundation offers $51,000 in Confidence U Grants to colleges and universities to develop confidence-building programming and awareness initiatives for women on their campuses. Grants of up to $5,000 are awarded to colleges or universities.
As part of Confidence U, Kappa Delta also presents a $1,000 award to one Panhellenic representative or university leader who is making a strong and visible difference in the lives of women on his/her campus.
The grants provide needed funding for colleges and universities to address one or more issues that affect women on their campuses, such as eating disorders, unhealthy relationships, alcohol abuse, body image, cyberbullying and more. Programming can include workshops, speakers, special presentations, awareness campaigns, etc. This initiative allows campus leaders to make an impact in the lives of women and influence their campus culture.

Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute
Hosted by the North-American Interfraternity Conference Foundation (NICF), the Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute (UIFI) is an annual five-day institute that brings together sorority women and fraternity men nationwide to create opportunities to explore their leadership skills, personal awareness, and commitment to their fraternity or sorority.
Each year, the Kappa Delta Foundation selects Kappa Delta collegians to support at UIFI. The foundation covers the registration fee, which includes lodging and meals for the duration of the institute. Recipients are responsible for their own travel expenses.
Any initiated Kappa Delta is encouraged to apply. Applications are available here and are due March 1. Applicants will be prompted to sign in using their Kappa Delta member profile credentials. Please note that all forms must be completed electronically. Recipients are notified late spring.

KiDs Grants are designed to allow Kappa Delta alumnae chapters and individual alumnae an opportunity to partner with local nonprofit agencies to improve the quality of life for KiDs, the heart of the community.
Each year $25,000 is available for quality programming and prevention-oriented projects that have a direct, positive effect on families and children, with a maximum of $10,000 for a single recipient. Applicants are encouraged to work in partnership with collegiate chapters, alumnae chapters or other KDs. Emphasis and preference will be given to sustainable projects that provide positive visibility in the community and those which offer involvement opportunities to Kappa Deltas.

Kappa Delta Alumnae Crisis Fund
Through the Alumnae Crisis Fund, the Kappa Delta Foundation provides immediate financial assistance in the form of a grant to an initiated Kappa Delta alumna who is experiencing dire financial need and who has exhausted other sources of financial assistance (through medical insurance, family or bank loans, etc.). Consideration is given to applicants in a personal crisis, emergency situation due to medical reasons or natural disasters.
