PHOCUS ON PHILANTHROPY

If you are interested in helping to plan an event, have volunteer hours that you would like to count towards our goal, or have any questions relating to our philanthropic endeavors, please contact our Philanthropy Chair.

Our Philanthropies

In 2004, the Kappa Kappa Gamma Fraternity selected Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) as its national philanthropy.  RIF is the oldest and largest children's and family nonprofit literacy organization in the U.S.  The organization provides 4.5 million under served children with 16 million new, free books and literacy resources each year.  Since 2004, Kappa's collegiate chapters and alumnae associations have contributed funds, volunteer time, and materials to support RIF.  In July 2008, RIF recognized Kappa as its Donor of the Month. 
 
Although RIF is headquartered in Washington D.C. and is practically a local charity, Northern Virginia Alumnae Association has expanded its efforts to support literacy on a local scale.  The NoVA Alumnae Association sponsors an annual "Reading Is Key" event with the Child and Family Network Center (CFNC) in Alexandria.  This local organization provides free preschool education for children living in poverty in Northern Virginia.  CFNC also provides free family support, literacy, job training, and health programs to the parents of the students, giving children what they need most: strong, capable families.
