"As individuals with time, talents and treasures, Kappa's philanthropic projects follow the "1-2-3" schedule: 1) Kappas support our sisters 2) we participate in local service projects and 3) we serve our TCU community. Our chapter members support George C. Clarke Elementary School, The North Texas Food Bank, and the Humane Society just to name a few organizations near to our hearts. We host philanthropy events annually, but with each new year, we try to get involved in a variety of things. I'm honored to be serving as Epsilon Alpha's Philanthropy Chair and am excited to see what all our chapter will accomplish this year."

KAPPA KOLOR RUN
This spring our chapter will hold our 4th annual Kappa Kolor Run which benefits George C. Clarke Elementary and other community organizations. George C. Clarke is an under privilege local elementary school with low funding for the library. The money we raise supports scholarships for the students of George C. Clarke and for providing the students with their own books. Since being involved with George C. Clarke we have seen an increase in test state test scores! We hope to host another wonderful Kolor run that will be enjoyed by even the most competitive participants.
READING IS FUNDAMENTAL
Nationally, Kappa Kappa Gamma’s philanthropy is Reading Is Fundamental. RIF works to build a literate nation by helping young people discover the joy of reading. One of RIF’s main priorities is to serve the nation’s under-served children and families through the development and delivery of literacy programs and campaigns that motivate youth to read. Locally, TCU Kappa furthers the ideals of RIF by frequently visiting George C. Clarke, an elementary school in Fort Worth. TCU Kappas participate in service activities at George C. Clarke through tutoring, live reading, and in an after school mentoring program. We participate in school supplies and book drives for George C. Clarke. Last year we provided enough books for each child to take home two books.
