As Stanford’s chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma, we support two different philanthropies. We support our own chapter appointed philanthropy, One Love, and the Kappa Kappa Gamma national philanthropy, Active Minds.
The One Love foundation’s mission is to educate young people about healthy and unhealthy relationship behaviors. Relationships, whether romantic or platonic, are something we do not talk about enough. As a chapter, we aim to change the conversation around relationships on campus, empowering both our members and those not affiliated with the Kappa community to identify and avoid abuse and to learn how to love better. To support One Love, we participate in facilitated group discussions around healthy and unhealthy relationships; we also hold a charity benefit concert to raise money for One Love each year.

Kappa Kappa Gamma nationally recognizes a series of organizations that aim to improve mental health. As a chapter, we have selected to support Active Minds, a non-profit focused on starting conversations around mental health. No one should have to suffer in silence. This spring we plan to host a Krispy Kreme fundraiser for Active Minds. In the past, we have held outdoor movie nights. To learn more about Active Minds, please visit http://www.activeminds.org.
