Dear Kappa Epsilon Member,
Our fraternal organization has now entered its 94th year and we are eagerly anticipating our 100th Anniversary Celebration, which will occur in 2021. KE would not be able to continue to function without the support of you, our loyal members, so THANK YOU!
The KE Foundation was established in 1992 to be able to assist our members by: sponsoring and promoting educational programs and research projects in the field of pharmacy; promoting and supporting continuing education programs for alumni (especially at our National Conventions); promoting the scholarship, character and morality of collegiates by providing educational advantages and fostering intellectual excellence through grants, fellowships, scholarship incentives and awards.
Currently the KE Foundation has awarded the Zada M. Cooper Scholarship to more than 355 aspiring collegiates, recognized many exemplary collegiates and alumni through the Linda T. Rodgers Memorial Award, bestowed several grants to collegiate and alumni chapters, underwritten educational programming at biennial conventions and the Fraternity’s website, awarded book scholarships and enhanced and strengthened mentoring roles.
We are requesting your support to continue providing funds for these worthwhile programs. Your contribution is key in sustaining and furthering the work supported by the Foundation.
The Foundation is also issuing a challenge to every KE member to contribute a minimum of $500 earmarked for the 100th Anniversary Celebration by June 30, 2020. As a token of your support, a custom made piece of Fraternity jewelry will be awarded to those who have contributed the minimum amount.
On behalf of the Foundation, I extend our sincere appreciation for your consideration and support of our many worthwhile initiatives. Thank you for your generosity!
Reneé M. Ference
