Philanthropy & Service

The Chicago North Shore alumnae chapter is committed to bettering ourselves and our community. Every year in February we accept applications from members of our alumnae chapter for organizations whose missions also fit within the values of Kappa Alpha Theta Fraternity and our own chapter. We also give annually to Theta Foundation, the Friendship Fund, and our local CASA chapters.

For the 2016 year, our chapter has chosen to give gifts to the following organizations:

Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation
Awarding more than $1 million annually, Theta Foundation stands as pillar of support for Thetas and a partner in the Fraternity’s educational and philanthropic efforts. Created by Thetas for Thetas, Theta Foundation is dedicated to partnering with individuals and college and alumnae chapters for fundraising efforts to support Thetas with scholarships, non-degree educational and leadership grants, and the Fraternity’s educational and leadership programs.

Theta Foundation Scholarship & Grant Applications
Applications are now being accepted for the 2018-2019 academic year for Theta Foundation Scholarships & Grants. College and alumnae chapters and individual Thetas are eligible to apply for Theta Foundation grants for non-degree educational, leadership, and service-learning opportunities. Applications are available year-round and grants are awarded on a quarterly schedule throughout the fiscal year, July 1 through June 30.This is wonderful opportunity and we encourage everyone to apply.

The Friendship Fund
The Friendship Fund has been a tangible demonstration of the love and concern we feel for one another. It is based on a beautiful, timeless idea—sisters reaching out to sisters. The Friendship Fund provides gifts to Thetas experiencing extreme financial hardship due to serious or terminal illness, job loss, natural disaster, and other devastating occurrences. One very important aspect of the Fund is the secrecy surrounding the giving of gifts. Two members write on the behalf of a sister, and the Friendship Fund committee determines the award amount. The requesters remain anonymous, and all records are confidential.

CASA of Cook County
CASA is Theta's national philanthropy. College and alumnae chapters are encouraged to support their local CASA chapters. CASA advocates for the best interests of abused and neglected children within the juvenile court system.

Students and adult participants are learning, developing skills, and increasing self-esteem. Everyone, no matter his or her ability, has strengths, talents, and aspirations.
