Founded in 1960, Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable and educational tax-exempt organization. Theta Foundation’s mission is to secure and manage resources for the educational, leadership, and philanthropic programs of the Fraternity and for the scholastic, professional, and service pursuits of its members to help them reach their fullest potential and make a difference in the world.
It was the vision of Theta Foundation’s first president, Evelyn Widman Tunnicliffe, that Theta Foundation put Fraternity “ideals into action” by helping individuals realize their fullest potential through rehabilitation, education, and involvement. Thanks to her commitment and the support of the members who have followed in her footsteps, the legacy of Evelyn Widman Tunnicliffe and the love for Kappa Alpha Theta carries on today.
Awarding more than $1.1 million annually, Theta Foundation stands as a pillar of support for Thetas and a partner in the Fraternity’s educational and philanthropic efforts. Created by Thetas for Thetas, Theta Foundation is dedicated to partnering with individuals and college and alumnae chapters for fundraising efforts to support Thetas with scholarships, non-degree educational and leadership grants, and the Fraternity’s educational and leadership programs.
After more than 50 years, Theta Foundation remains committed to partnering with Theta women and chapters to support the Fraternity’s ideals of highest scholarship, widest influence for good, and love.
