For more than 20 years, the Kappa Delta Foundation has supported the bright futures and college dreams of Girl Scouts across the country by providing scholarships annually in recognition of Gold Award Girl Scouts. This year, the foundation’s annual contribution of $50,400 will support scholarships for 111 world-changing Gold Award Girl Scouts across our Movement who contributed about 11,000 hours toward creating long-term solutions to issues they’re passionate about—from combatting food insecurity and destigmatizing conversations about mental health to podcasting about climate change. This support will help these incredible young leaders kick-start their futures, achieve their goals, and continue to make the world a better place. Honorees are selected through a rigorous local review process that evaluates their efforts to improve their communities and drive lasting change in the world.
The Kappa Delta Foundation is the charitable arm of the Kappa Delta Sorority, an organization that has been a vital partner to Girl Scouts of the USA since 1998. Kappa Delta members serve as volunteers, guiding and mentoring Girl Scouts across the country on their leadership journeys, and reinforcing the importance of integrity and friendship. In addition to providing GSUSA with critical volunteer support, Kappa Delta chapters host confidence-building and anti-bullying events, International Girls Day celebrations, and other empowering activities for girls in their communities. Girl Scouts who take part in Kappa Delta-sponsored events are eligible to earn a special Kappa Delta participation patch.
