The national philanthropy of Kappa Kappa Gamma is ‘Reading Is Fundamental’, focusing on childhood literacy and the importance of family engagement in a child’s education leading to future academic success! Our chapter has raised money for this organization through our Spring philanthropy event, the Low Kountry Boil, and will continue to benefit RIF through a Fall philanthropy event, as well as our Reading Is Key event planned for this fall as well. Our chapter has created and started filling up the KKG Book Bank for our Reading Is Key event, in which every child in attendance will go home with a book of their own. In addition to Reading Is Fundamental, the sisters of Kappa Kappa Gamma also work to benefit other philanthropic causes including the Kappa Kappa Gamma foundation as well as the Rose McGill Aid to support our sisters all over the country.
While we have our national philanthropic causes, Kappa’s also pride ourselves in helping our community through local philanthropy and service opportunities. Starting this fall, we will be partnering with Marbles Kids Museum volunteering our help with events put on by Marbles that promote children’s education, school success, and literacy!
