The Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation was founded in 1960 and started working with CASA in 1989. The Theta’s devote themselves to “attain highest scholarship, to create the widest influence for good, and to commit to love.” They have 129 college-based chapters, 189 alumni chapters, and 8 alumni circles.
In 2011, Kappa Alpha Theta gave a total of around $450,000 to several local CASA programs and has contributed over $1 million to help fund National CASA’s public awareness efforts.
In Nashville, there are two Kappa Alpha Theta chapters, the Alpha Eta chapter at Vanderbilt University and the new Eta Phi chapter at Belmont University. The Alpha Etas have won the Gold Kite and the Award for Excellence in Administration. There is also a very successful Nashville Alumnae Chapter. They have won the Gold Kite along with Top in Overall Giving per Dues Paying Member, Top in Giving to a Named Endowed Fund, and runner up for Top Overall Giving.
We thank the Kappa Alpha Theta’s so much for all their support locally and nationally. We look forward to working with them in the future! They are a great group of hard working, determined, and compassionate women!
