Support the Kappa Delta Foundation.
By contributing to the foundation, you invest not only in the future of our sisters but in the future of Kappa Delta. Every gift, at any amount, supports educational and leadership opportunities offered to our sisters and the philanthropic efforts of Kappa Delta. Together, we can make an extraordinary impact on the lives of our members and in our communities.
The Kappa Delta Foundation is exempt from federal income tax under Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3). Donations to the foundation are tax-deductible as provided by law.

- Give a white rose. The foundation’s White Rose Garden initiative is available year-round and coincides with Kappa Delta’s regional and national gatherings. The garden gives both alumnae and collegians the chance to celebrate a sister, friend or family member with the gift of a Kappa Delta white rose. Honor a sister here.
