Get to Know Kappa

We're a women's organization. It starts with that. But where we go from there is up to the woman. Kappa Kappa Gamma offers a member experience ranging from friendship to mentoring, from leadership to service and from campus activities to a lifetime of community involvement. Kappa doesn't tell our members what to be, we simply give them an experience that provides a context for discovery, development and the realization of what a woman aspires to be. 

Our Founding:

Kappa Kappa Gamma was founded on Oct. 13, 1870 at Monmouth College in Monmouth, Ill. by six women. Whether or not they imagined the ultimate size and scope Kappa would achieve, our Founders clearly believed in a woman’s potential to inspire others and impact the world, a belief that continues today.

Our Badge: 

Our golden key symbolizes unlocking the mysteries in science, literature, and art.

Our Symbol:

 The fleur-de-lis is the stylized, decorative symbol of the iris, Kappa's official flower, chosen for its dignity and grace.

Our National Philanthropy:

We’re proud to call Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) our national philanthropic partner. Their mission is to encourage and motivate young children to read. Through our partnership, we help make reading a fun and beneficial part of everyday life for children who have few to no books at home and little exposure to libraries.
