Sigma Kappa has four major philanthropies: Gerontology/Alzheimer’s Research, Inherit the Earth, the Maine Sea Coast Mission, and the Sigma Kappa Foundation.
Gerontology & Alzheimer's Research
While our chapter participates in all four of the Sigma Kappa philanthropies, Gerontology & Alzheimer’s Research is our biggest. Every year, our chapter participates in our local Walk to End Alzheimer's event every fall. Our sisters spend months leading up to the event fundraising for Alzheimer's research to help those diagnosed or affected by the disease and to help fund the research needed to one day defeat the disease. Further, each of our members volunteers at Blakey Hall, a local assisted living and retirement community. At Blakey Hall, sisters spend their time with and provide their help to those diagnosed with Dementia and Alzheimer's. This hands-on service allows our sisters to directly connect with our philanthropy and create their own personal impact on the cause.
The Sigma Kappa Foundation
The Sigma Kappa Foundation is incredibly important to every Sigma Kappa chapter. This foundation is the financial backbone of Sigma Kappa and is crucial to the growth and success of the sorority. The mission of the Sigma Kappa Foundation is to create and fund leadership, scholarship and philanthropic initiatives that reflect the values and spirit of Sigma Kappa Sorority.
