Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion web page provides updates on Kappa Alpha Theta's actions regarding our efforts on inclusion and diversity within our organization.
2020 is Theta’s sesquicentennial, and Pansy Patch is the perfect opportunity to honor and remember Thetas close to you. Each pansy donation helps Thetas achieve their dreams and reach their fullest potential.
Please share with others that you have given! When members receive pansies, they may feel inspired to honor another sister, and they honor another by sending more pansies. There’s no better way to celebrate sisterhood than to pay it forward. You can also inspire others to give by sharing personal stories about the impact of Kappa Alpha Theta on your life and the lives of those close to you. No matter how you share the message, the spirit of Pansy Patch takes hold and quickly, the Pansy Patch blooms bright!
When you purchase a pansy, honorees will receive an email notification with a virtual pansy. Theta members will receive notification to the email on file with Theta headquarters. If you select a member who does not have an email on file with Theta headquarters or who has chosen to opt out of email communication, you will be notified on the donation form. You are welcome to send an email directly to this member if you have her information, but she will not receive an automated email from Theta Foundation.
Emails come from Kappa Alpha Theta <email@example.com> with the subject line: "Your virtual pansy awaits." Honorees should check all their folders to be sure the message does not arrive in the “junk” folder.
No! You can purchase an unlimited number of pansies at one time unless you are purchasing a 150 Giving Club Pansy.
Yes, you can make a gift in memory of a deceased loved one, Theta, or friend, but no email notification will be sent.
There are three giving clubs exclusive to Theta’s 150th birthday at the $150, $1,500, and $15,000, levels. All 150 Giving Club gifts are directed to the Theta Forever Fund and donors will also have the opportunity to honor a special Theta.
Yes! College and alumnae chapters are invited to join individual donors as members of Theta’s 150 Giving Clubs. Chapters will also have the opportunity to honor a beloved Theta as part of their 150 Giving Club gifts.
