Check out Clemson Theta's latest philanthropy event supporting CASA!
In 1989, Kappa Alpha Theta Fraternity adopted National C.A.S.A., or Court Appointed Special Advocates, as the fraternity’s official philanthropy. CASA is an organization that provides mentors for abused, abandoned and neglected children. These mentors establish close bonds with the children as they interact one-on-one and serve as a voice for the children during the judicial process. As our national website says, "CASA is central to fulfilling society's most fundamental obligation by making sure a qualified, compassionate adult will fight for and protect a child's right to be safe, to be treated with dignity and respect, and to learn and grow in the security of a loving family. Today, there are more than 77,000 advocates serving in nearly 1,000 state and local program offices nationwide. CASA programs across the country are known by several different names, including Guardian ad Litem, Child Advocates and Voices for Children. Since the inception of CASA advocacy, volunteers have helped almost 240,000 abused and neglected children find safe, permanent homes in which they can thrive."
Our chapter also supports the Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation, which is a charitable and educational tax-exempt organization separate and independent from the Fraternity whose mission is to link Theta collegians and alumnae with resources to help them reach their fullest potential and make a difference in the world. Created by Thetas, for Thetas, Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation is dedicated to providing programming to help our Theta sisters achieve their personal and professional dreams.
We also support the Friendship Fund. Since it was established in 1926, 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. During a period of need, the care love and support demonstrated by a Friendship Fund gift has made all the difference to hundreds of Thetas.
The Delta Phi chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta at Clemson University supports CASA, the Theta Foundation and the Friendship Fund in a number of ways including donations resulting from past philanthropic fundraising events such as Charity Denim and Kickin’ it for CASA.
The Delta Phi chapter also takes part in philanthropy events for other members of our Greek community as well as many organizations around Clemson.
Kappa Alpha Theta is always looking for service projects in our own community. Reaching out to not only our national philanthropies but events that can improve the area around us has always been a priority.
