National Philanthropy

Did you know that only 35 percent of U.S. high school seniors read proficiently? What about the child who struggles to read “Clifford the Big Red Dog”? Not having books makes achieving grade-level literacy difficult.

That’s why 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.

Events are planned annually where local Kappas host reading-themed activities, refreshments and best of all—free books! In addition, many Kappas sign up to be reading buddies, tutors and mentors to school-aged students.
