KA Gives Back

This campaign ended on January 01, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Kappa Alpha Order Educational Foundation by clicking here!

On December 21, 1865, our four founders came together in a dorm room at Washington College (now Washington & Lee University) and swore allegiance to one another, creating the Kappa Alpha Order - a modern-day brotherhood inspired by the values of the Knights of old.  154 years and nearly 175,000 initiated brothers later, KA remains a Moral Compass for the Modern Gentleman.

 In honor of the year of our founding, and 154 years of KA, we are seeking 1,865 brothers and friends to join us today as KA GIVES BACK.  Helping us reach our goal of raising $300,000 ensures that current and future brothers will have access to the same special experiences as those who came before them. 

GIVE BACK in honor of 154 years of KA.

GIVE BACK to help a brother in need of financial relief through a KAOEF scholarship.

GIVE BACK to provide brothers a career-shaping summer internship experience in Atlanta, Dallas or Washington, D.C..

GIVE BACK to help build strong leaders in our chapters and communities through KA’s values-based leadership education programs.

GIVE BACK to make KA even stronger.

GIVE BACK to ensure another 154 years of KA.

And when you GIVE BACK, KA will GIVE BACK too:  active chapters will receive 2% of the total amount raised in their name to use for values-based leadership education conferences.
