The early college days of Bettie, Alice, Hannah, and Bettie were difficult. They needed one another: to console and empathize, to uplift and encourage, to strengthen and support. Just as our founders did, generations of Thetas have offered these things to one another.

We have also offered material aid in our sisters’ darkest hours, and that is the basis for our Friendship Fund. Since 1926, the fund has provided gifts to Thetas experiencing extreme financial hardship due to serious or terminal illness, job loss, natural disaster, and other devastating occurrences.

On January 27, 2020, the 150th anniversary of our founding, I hope you will join me in honoring our founders with a gift to the Friendship Fund. With the traditional gift of $1 per year of membership, you can give support to sisters who desperately need it.

Gifts to the fund may be made by checks payable to Kappa Alpha Theta, with “Friendship Fund” written on the memo line, and mailed to Kappa Alpha Theta, 8740 Founders Rd., Indianapolis, IN 46268, attn: Friendship Fund. (Gifts are not tax-deductible.)

For more information about requesting help from the Friendship Fund for a Theta sister, please contact us or call 888-526-1870, ext. 140.
