Theta Foundation at the University of Georgia
We are lucky to be a part of an organization like Kappa Alpha Theta that offers our members the opportunity to receive scholarships to assist them in following their dreams. Various members of our chapter have been awarded scholarship money through the Theta Foundation.
Last semester, we were able to donate our proceeds from the Easter Egg Hunt that we hosted
at our house towards this amazing cause. We look forward to continually participating in everything that the Theta Foundation strives to provide for Thetas around the country.
