Recognition Societies

Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation’s giving societies foster a tradition of philanthropy and recognize our most loyal supporters.

Annual Giving Societies

Presidents Circle

This society honors Fraternity and Foundation presidents – present and past – and the commitment of individuals whose generous support enables Kappa Alpha Theta to remain steadfast in moving our vision forward. Presidents Circle gifts recognize Thetas, parents, and friends at the gold and silver levels.

Gold: $2,500 or more annually
Silver:$1,000 - $2,499 annually

Founders Society

Like the four women whose energy and commitment established Theta in 1870, Founders Society members provide the foundation for continued strength and growth. Founders Society gifts recognize Thetas, parents, and friends at the gold and silver levels.

Gold: $500 - $999 annually
Silver: $250 - $499 annually

Soaring Kite Society

The Soaring Kite Society is an opportunity for Theta graduates of the last decade to make a small, but meaningful, gift. By giving just $4 per month (or $48 per year), Theta’s young alumnae can begin a tradition of giving that will support Kappa Alpha Theta today and tomorrow.
