Dear Kappa Epsilon Member,
This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the Kappa Epsilon Foundation and our fraternal organization has now entered its 96th year. KE would not be able to continue to function without the support of you, our loyal members. 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; and, 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 365 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 mentoring roles.
We are requesting a tax-deductible contribution of $100 from all members to continue providing funds for these worthwhile programs. These funds offer a tax incentive and they will assist you in providing a legacy to the Fraternity and profession. Your inspired giving is the key to sustaining and furthering the work supported by the KE Foundation.
The KE Foundation is also issuing a challenge to every KE member to make an additional contribution: a minimum of $500 earmarked for the 100th Anniversary Celebration by June 30, 2020 (less than $20 a month starting January 2018). As a token of your support, a custom-made piece of Fraternity jewelry will be awarded to those who have contributed at least $500.
On behalf of the KE Foundation, I extend our sincere appreciation for your consideration and support of our many worthwhile initiatives. Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions or contribution ideas. Thank you for your generosity!
