Please send in your nominations by October 1, 2010 to be considered as the CAKD nominees. In addition, each individual member may nominate one alumna for the Order of the Emerald and Order of the Pearl. Check out the KD website (www.kappadelta.org) for more information.

KiDs Grant Deadline Moved – The Kappa Delta Foundation has recently announced that the deadline date for Alumnae Chapters to apply of KiDs Grants has been moved to January 15, 2011. They are making changes to better serve KD alumnae chapters and the orgaznizations that will receive the funding.

Alumnae Magazine News – KDHQ sent word that total sales for the 2009-2010 Magazine Sales Campaign were $483,016.00, with alumnae chapter orders totaling $9,703.98. CAKD sold $97.00 last year. The KD Chapter House fund reaped the benefit of 50% of these sales this year.
There are several ways to support the KD Chapter House fund through magazine sales this year. You can find an alumnae or collegiate chapter to support by following these instructions:
1. Go to http://kd.efundraising.com.
2. Type the name of the alumnae or collegiate chapter where it asks for “Chapter Name”
3. Click on the “Find Button”
4. When “Search Results” are displayed, click on the name of your alumnae chapter.
5. Click on “Shop for Magazines” to take you to your AC or CC’s online store.

Each collegiate chapter has a minimum sales requirement per member, so please consider helping out one of the lovely chapters in our sisterhood. Generally 50% of total sales go directly to the KD Chapter House Fund.

Greek Licensed Vendors – Kappa Delta wanted to remind us that licensed vendors assure a quality product at a competitive price, with a portion of the proceeds directly benefitting the programming and guidance offered by Kappa Delta. Visit http://GreekLicensing.com to find Greek Licensed Vendors.
