"The mission of the National Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Association, together with its state and local members, is to support and promote court-appointed volunteer advocacy so that every abused or neglected child can be safe, establish permanence and have the opportunity to thrive."
Kappa Alpha Theta is a proud national supporter of CASA.
The Eta Phi chapter helps support CASA in numerous ways, ranging from donations to workshops and events for CASA, and even members of our chapter serving as volunteers for the organization.
KAPPA ALPHA THETA FOUNDATION
The Kappa Alpha 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."
At Theta, scholarship is our highest aim, striving for high academic excellence. We have achieved the highest GPA among all student organizations all but one of our semesters as an established sorority. In 2012, our charter class Chief Executive Officer received the Bettie Locke Hamilton Scholarship, the foundation's highest scholarship offered. We also were proud to have five members in 2012 receive funds from the foundation.
Eta Phi has dedicated themselves to raising money for the Theta Foundation to help members receive leadership and educational grants to make their dreams attainable.
Since it was established in 1926, the Friendship Fund has been a tangible demonstration of the love and concern we feel for one another. It is based on a beautiful, timeless idea—sisters reaching out to sisters.
The Friendship Fund provides gifts to Thetas experiencing extreme financial hardship due to serious or terminal illness, job loss, natural disaster, and other devastating occurrences. One very important aspect of the Fund is the secrecy surrounding the giving of gifts. Two members write on the behalf of a sister, and the Friendship Fund committee determines the award amount. The requesters remain anonymous, and all records are confidential. Through the Friendship Fund, we reaffirm our belief that Kappa Alpha Theta is larger than ourselves and that what we give to one another comes full circle.
