Dear Kappa Epsilon Member,
The KE Foundation was established in 1992 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 370 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 contribution of $150 from all members to continue providing funds for these worthwhile programs. These funds may offer a tax incentive and they will assist you in providing a legacy to the Fraternity and profession. Additional ways to tailor your giving are HERE. 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. 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!
Donna M. Heffner, RPh, MBA (Omicron)
Kappa Epsilon Foundation President
