Kappa Psi Kappa Fraternity, Inc. asserts that through its community outreach initiatives, the fraternity supplies voice and vision to the struggling communities throughout the nation. We provides a foundation of leadership skills to its members that are developed through service to others. The service our members provide set the Fraternity a part from other Greek organizations. The fraternity combines its efforts in conjunction with various philanthropic organizations such as: Big Brother, Big Sister, March of Dimes, Action Aides, Habitat for Humanity, and Stand Up for Kids.
Kappa Psi Kappa Fraternity, Inc. provides an identified or recognized effort of service to extend to or include others, especially undeserved, underrepresented, or vulnerable populations utilizing the four forms of service:
• Volunteering-Providing non-compensatory, direct hands-on service or support to a community need.
• Philanthropy-The exchange of funds or goods to support a non-profit or community endeavor.
• Donations- solicited on behalf of a program or cause; Collecting canned goods for a food pantry; Bake sale.
• Immersion-A short term engagement where participants collaborate with community members on a project or activity that meets expressed community needs.
Though chapters organize their own community events throughout the year, there are three fraternity-sponsored service initiatives that Kappa Psi Kappa chapters participate in alongside other chapters across the nation: Project B.O.O.K. (Bank of Opportunistic Knowledge), Project 2001 Hours Served, and Midas Touch.
Project Book is a fraternal effort to supply schools in need with the literacy materials needed to enhance the quality of education amongst elementary school students nationwide. Each chapter and colony will be responsible for hosting a charitable drive toward this national effort, to be delivered to their school of choice.
Project 2001 Hours Served
Kappa Psi Kappa Fraternity, Inc. prides itself on being a service first, then social organization. We set forth to challenge our members within the entire organization to complete a total of 2001 service hours annually.
A sub-component to this project is to engage community members to participate in organization service projects and initiatives; to highlight the value to service and the work that we do.
