Philanthropy: Reading Is Fundamental and the Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation
Our story began on October 13, 1870, in Monmouth, Illinois, when six women marched into chapel with golden keys in their hair. Whether or not they imagined the ultimate size and scope Kappa would achieve, our Founders clearly believed in a woman’s potential to inspire others and impact the world, a belief that continues today. Kappa doesn't tell our members what to be, we simply give them an experience that provides a context for discovery, development and the realization of what a woman aspires to be. Our organization thrives on tradition, leadership, academics and friendship.
Although the rich history of Kappa Kappa Gamma began in 1870, Eta Chi chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma colonized on NC State’s campus in the fall of 2016. We are lucky to share a beautiful home off Avent Ferry Road with our sisters. Along with various social events, we enjoy hosting events to support our national philanthropy such as our annual Kappa Low Kountry Boil! Alone, each Kappa brings unique qualities to campus and our communities, but together we make a difference. We look forward to meeting all of you and expanding this wonderful sisterhood throughout many years to come on this campus.
