THE FRIENDSHIP FUND
The Beta Lambda Chapter additionally supports Kappa Alpha Theta's 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 Friendship Fund provides gifts to Thetas experiencing extreme financial hardship due to a serious or terminal illness, job loss, natural disaster, and other devastating occurrences. One very important aspect of the Fund is the secrecy surrounding the gifts. Two members write on behalf of a sister, and the Friendship Fund committee determines the award amount. The requesters remain anonymous, and all records are confidential. Through the Friendship Fund, we reaffirm our belief that Kappa Alpha Theta is larger than ourselves and that what we give to one another comes full circle.
Traditionally, contributions to the Friendship Fund are made through Founder's Day gifts, but donations are welcome at any time during the year. The suggested contribution is $1 for each year of membership.
