KYCF is the chapter’s nonprofit 501 (c) 3 program that provides book and tuition scholarships to deserving students and support to organizations in the Gaithersburg – Rockville community.
For more than 10 years, the Foundation has supported the Chapter and its initiatives with a unity of purpose. Our Foundation has played and continues to play a crucial role in the growth and success of the Gaithersburg/Rockville ΚΑΨ Alumni Chapter, providing the lifeblood of financial resources to keep our chapter vital and healthy. The Foundation inspires our Brothers to excel in philanthropic service to benefit our community. The Foundation fulfills its mission through the community and social projects working with local agency to feed needy families during the holidays, conducting Christmas toy drives and assist in organizing and volunteering with the NAACP in community activities, which include voter registration. Recognizing the importance of investing in tomorrow’s leaders, the Foundation proudly provides financial scholarships to deserving students in their pursuit of higher education. The Foundation also supports mentorship programs for young men of culture through our Guide Right and Kappa Development League initiatives.
To continue this high level of community service, the Foundation relies on fundraising events such as the annual Scholarship Dinner. However, the Foundation’s board of directors continues to aggressively explore other sources, such as donations and grants to further its work to improve the lives of families and students in the Montgomery County cites of Gaithersburg and Rockville.
