Children's Hospital Foundation
Kappa Delta's support of the Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU, Virginia dates back to 1921. The sorority became interested in the work being done in our founding state by William Tate Graham, M.D., a pioneer in the field known for treating polio victims. Dr. Graham had become renowned for his revolutionary approaches and never turned away a patient for their inability to pay.
Beginning with our initial pledge of $1,200 to support two beds, Kappa Delta's commitment to Children's Hospital Foundation (supports funding of the Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU) over the years has never wavered. The sorority's monetary and tangible gifts have totaled more than $2.2 million. Contributions have gone to develop a motion clinic, purchase hospital equipment, medical braces and neurosurgical instruments, provide playground equipment and purchase vans to transport patients. Local chapters and alumnae groups also sponsor the annual Halloween and Easter parties and assist with the Teddy Bear Toss.
I would like to help the Children's Hospital by giving to the Foundation.
