Philanthropy

Kappa Delta Sigma’s chosen philanthropy is the Vera Bradley Breast Foundation for Breast Cancer. Being a collection of women from all walks of life, it was important for us to choose a philanthropy that does not discriminate… and as all too many people know, breast cancer does not discriminate. KDS proudly donates 100% of the proceeds raised by sisters through its various philanthropy events every semester to VBBCF.

The sisters of Kappa Delta Sigma pride themselves on outstanding community service, on both a group and individual level. Below are our annual events, though we are always open to helping out wherever possible! If you’d like to get KDS involved in your event, please contact Katie Miller at kwmill15@stlawu.edu.
