Day of Service

Kappa Alpha Theta's Day of Service is Oct. 19. Since its inception in 2009, the International Day of Service brings Theta collegians and alumnae together in service in honor of founder Bettie Locke Hamilton on her birthday.

One of Kappa Alpha Theta's three aims is to exercise the widest influence for good. Kappa Alpha Theta aspires to cultivate philanthropists who demonstrate tangible works to seek positive change in their communities. Kappa Alpha Theta categorizes philanthropy in three areas:

  • Service, focusing on hands-on volunteering for others;
  • Fundraising, or collecting monetary or in-kind donations for causes close to our hearts;
  • Advocacy, or championing a cause through public support, education, and awareness.

Even if you aren't able to participate with your chapter, you can participate individually. No act of service is too small! Imagine the impact Thetas can have, if we all give just a little bit of our time to serve those in need.
