A CORNERSTONE of KAPPA KAPPA GAMMA
Members of our Dallas Alumnae Association are Committed to our Community
The Dallas Alumnae Association Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation, Inc. through the Dallas Alumnae Association's Philanthropy Committee, supports our community through its annual Kappa Tablescapes event. The process begins in the fall with Association Members nominating non-profit 501(c)(3) agencies to be considered. Agencies are researched and selected to be beneficiaries of the October event. *Association members requiring more information, nominating forms and researcher forms click here.

THE DALLAS ALUMNAE ASSOCIATION KAPPA KAPPA GAMMA FOUNDATION, INC., established in 1984, is responsible for receiving and distributing funds raised through Kappa Tablescapes. It is organized and operated exclusively for charitable purposes under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Foundation's Board of Trustees are members in good standing of the Dallas Alumnae Association of Kappa Kappa Gamma and are approved by the Association at their annual meeting.
KAPPA TABLESCAPES, an annual event sponsored by the Dallas Alumnae Association of Kappa Kappa Gamma, brings local designers, florists, and retailers together to create magnificent and unique table decorations for the benefit of annually selected agencies.
Beneficiaries - Nominating an Agency - Association Members in good standing may nominate an agency for consideration as a beneficiary. The Philanthropy Committee is responsible for researching and recommending a selection of beneficiaries to be recipients of proceeds from Kappa Tablescapes and presented for approval by the Dallas Alumnae Association of Kappa Kappa Gamma Board. Funds raised for Kappa Tablescapes are administered by the Dallas Alumnae Association Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation, Inc.
Agency Eligibility - To be eligible for nomination, an agency must be a 501(c)(3) non-profit agency serving constituents, citizens, and/or organizations in Dallas County. Each agency is required to meet with a Philanthropy Committee Researcher and provide required documentation and financial information, including the agency's 501(c)(3) letter and financial statements from the current and previous two years. The process, from nomination to being selected as a beneficiary to receiving proceeds from the Kappa Tablescapes event, takes approximately a year and a half.

In addition, our national fraternity selected READING IS FUNDAMENTAL as its national philanthropy with Reading Is Key as its signature event. Our association partners annually with a local non-profit agency to hold an event to promote literacy to underserved children and their families.
We support one another through the KAPPA KAPPA GAMMA FOUNDATION with scholarships and Rose McGill Grants, a program providing financial support to Kappas in unexpected times in need.
