Muncie, IN—The Delta Phi Chapter of Kappa, Kappa, Kappa, Inc. recently distributed $21,000 in grants and scholarships.
Grants of $250 to $500 each were awarded to non-profit organizations that fit the goals of Tri Kappa, which are to promote culture, charity and education within the community.
Recipients of this year’s Charitable Grants are: Hearts and Hands, Project Leadership, Muncie Symphony Orchestra, Ball State Guardian Scholars Program, Beyond I Can, Cancer Services – Little Red Door of East Central Indiana, Muncie Civic Theatre, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and Muncie Children’s Museum.
Scholarships of $2,000 each were awarded to outstanding high school students who have made significant contributions to both their high school and their community. These seniors all live in Delaware county and will attend an Indiana school in the fall.
Recipients of this year’s Tri Kappa Scholarships are: Erica Bergman of Yorktown High School, Olivia Phillips of Muncie Central High School and Damien Wilson of Daleville High School.
An Impact Grant of $10,000 is awarded every two years to an organization to fund a project that would reach a broad segment of the community. This year’s Impact Grant winner is Muncie Civic Theatre, for renovation of their costume shop.
Additionally, Tri Kappa volunteers operate the “Twice as Nice” Resale Shop located at the Muncie YWCA. Countless service hours by dedicated Tri Kappa volunteers generate nearly $10,000 annually for that organization.
Tri Kappa is a philanthropic organization that exists only in the state of Indiana. Its purpose is to bring women into close, unselfish relationship for the promotion of charity, culture and education. Philanthropic funds are raised primarily through the sorority’s long-running nut and candy sale each fall.
