About The Kappa Delta Foundation
Mission of the Kappa Delta Foundation
The mission of the Kappa Delta Foundation is to “secure funds for the educational, leadership and charitable purposes of Kappa Delta Sorority.” Established in 1981, the Kappa Delta Foundation provides scholarships, educational programming, leadership opportunities and philanthropic support to a number of worthwhile causes. By banding together, we make a difference!
About the White Rose Garden
At the 1985 National Convention, Kappa Delta began offering attendees the opportunity to purchase white roses to honor sisters. Since that time, the popular fundraising initiative has expanded, and the White Rose Garden has become an important element at national and regional events.
