The Kappa Tradition of Leadership includes involvement in the local community. Kappa women have always been committed to sharing their time, treasures, and talents with others. The Delta Zeta chapter requires each member to log at least eight hours of community service each semester.
We strive to be well-rounded in our individual acts of service to the community as well as our philanthropic endeavors as a chapter. Kappa Kappa Gamma's philanthropic strategy "Kappa Cares" emphasizes our national commitment to Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) and children’s literacy along with local activity. The Delta Zeta chapter also supports its local philanthropy, TESSA, which aids women and children who are victims of sexual and domestic violence. We also support local campus and community interests by participating in events like Pasta Bowls which supports Empty Stocking Fund and Relay for Life.
Beginning in 2014, the Delta Zeta Chapter began hosting a new philanthropy event--The Hungry, Hungry Kappa-pillar. As with previous events, Kappa-pillar aims to fund raise for RIF, TESSA, and the Rose McGill Fund of the Kappa Kappa Foundation, while simultaneously bringing together groups from across the Colorado College campus in support of these causes. This annual fundraising event consists of a big pie-eating contest with teams sponsored by Greek Life and numerous Colorado College clubs, along with pie throwing, a book resell, and a bake sale.
