The Little Rock Alumnae Association's local philanthropy is the UAMS Family Home. The UAMS Family Home is a private, non-profit facility at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock. It is owned by the board of Parents and Friends of Children and Adults, Inc. provides affordable lodging for cancer patients receiving treatment at the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute. Our very own association member Robin Dean is the coordinator for the Auxiliary Cancer Support Center. If you want to get involved, email us!
As individuals with time, talents and treasures, Kappas first support our sisters; second, we participate in local service projects; and third, we serve the greater good.
Our women support elementary schools, Relay for Life, Big Brothers/Big Sisters and Habitat for Humanity to name a few. Chapter fundraising events support causes such as the American Cancer Society, breast cancer/Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, tsunami relief, and multiple sclerosis research.
Reading Is Fundamental (RIF), our official philanthropic partner, has been supported through the donation of thousands of books and volunteer hours to Boys and Girls Clubs, elementary schools and hospitals.
Our associations also have supported the Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation with financial gifts and Rose McGill magazine subscription sales to help fund scholarships, confidential aid, education and training, and support of our two museums.
