Philanthropy is a very important part of being a Kappa. Beginning while an active member of their Kappa Chapter, our women learned the value of philanthropy. Nationally, Kappas support the official Kappa philanthropic partner, Reading is Fundamental (RIF), and the Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation.
As an association we also have our own philanthropic tradition. For the last three years, the Olympia Kappas have been supporting the South Sound Reading Foundation. South Sound Reading "aims to ensure that every child is read with at least 20 minutes every day, beginning at birth." The Foundation focuses on increasing literacy in the South Sound through a number of different programs.
- Beginning Books with Babies & New Books for Newborns.
- Born to Read.
- Read with Me.
- Booker T. "Twenty" Bear.
- First Book - Thurston County
Please bring a gently used or new children's book to each event, so we can continue to donate to this wonderful local organization for children!
