Kappa Delta

National KD

Kappa Delta Sorority was founded in 1897 at State Female Normal School, now Longwood University in Farmville, Va. The thought that over 100 years ago four young women could just sit down and create a sisterhood as enduring as Kappa Delta sometimes defies understanding, but that's exactly what they did.

Today, Kappa Delta is an impressive nationwide organization that reaches far beyond the local chapter. It is a national organization of more than 271,000 initiated members, 169 active collegiate chapters across the country and more than 530 chartered alumnae chapters nationwide. It is led by a National Council, over 100 national volunteers and a professional staff numbering over 40. It is a network of sisters and friends around the world who come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences.

Together, Kappa Deltas impact the lives of members and those in need around the world. Contributions to the Kappa Delta Foundation from alumnae, collegians and friends of Kappa Delta enable the sorority to further its philanthropic efforts, providing support for the sorority’s national philanthropies, numerous local community outreach programs, as well as scholarships and educational opportunities for members. 

We have chosen to become Kappa Deltas because we believe that, in some way, all of us can be better together than each of us can be alone. That is the strength of Kappa Delta nationally.
