Kappa Delta Sorority was founded in 1897 on the values of friendship, academic excellence and commitment to social and civic interests. As sisters in Kappa Delta, we focus on building lifelong friendships and inspiring confidence in women and girls around the world in partnership with the Girl Scouts of the USA. The members also team up with Seattle Children's Hospital to raise funds for the prevention of child abuse; specifically for the period of PURPLE cry program. Joining the Kappa Delta sisterhood provides opportunities not only for involvement in philanthropic efforts but a lifetime of meaningful relationships as well.
