Congratulations to these leading women!
Each year in November, we have one day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. November 29 marks Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation's second year participating in #GivingTuesday, and Thetas will come together to support an organization that has given us so much.
On #GivingTuesday 2015, more than 600 Theta members and friends made a commitment to the future of our Fraternity through Give to Lead, Give to Learn. From that effort, we shattered Theta Foundation's overall $5 million Campaign goal six months early, securing Kappa Alpha Theta's place at the forefront of leadership and learning.
On #GivingTuesday 2016, donations will provide funding for educational and leadership programs that enhance the membership experience of Thetas, including scholarships, educational grants, access to service trips, mental health programming, professional development, and leadership workshops. When you give to Theta this #GivingTuesday, you will help Thetas embrace their ambition, reach their fullest potential, and make a difference in the world. Join us and make a donation today!
