Day of Giving I Am Part of HistoryTo cap off 2015 and the Sesquicentennial Celebration, the Kappa Alpha Order Educational Foundation (KAOEF) hosted KA Gives, an inaugural day of giving, on December 21st. 

Through a combination of online and direct mail giving, including crowdfunding by undergraduate and alumni individuals and groups, the results were the biggest single event success in KAOEF history.
