Collegian studying

Invest in your sisters and the future of Kappa Delta

There are many ways you can support our mission. Every gift, at any amount, helps provide scholarships, internships, leadership training and so much more for your sisters, while also supporting KDs philanthropic efforts. Consider making a gift, or plans for a future gift, that will help KD continue to flourish for the generations of women who will follow today.

Give confidently

We deeply appreciate each of our donors.

 

Recognizing each person has different goals for their gifts, we have established multiple opportunities so you can determine how you would like to give. 

 

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.

    Scholarships, Intentions and Endowments

    A scholarship can provide educational enrichment and the tools to guide Kappa Deltas to success. Establishing a scholarship is a great opportunity to leave a transformational impact on Kappa Delta women.  

    Spreading out your payments on a large gift through a gift intention—an agreement to make a gift to the foundation—can help you give a generous gift using regular payments over time. 

    We also accept endowment gifts. Unlike gifts for current use, endowment gifts provide security over the long term by expanding the foundation’s permanent financial base and creating a predictable source of future income for such things as endowed scholarships.
