Kappa Gamma supports a national philanthropy: Reading is Fundamental

children across the country. Eta Epsilon chapter holds fundraisers to
benefit RIF throughout the year. Additionally, Eta Epsilon chapter
supports the Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation, which is named after our
honored sister Rose McGill. Proceeds are given to sisters in dire need
of financial support, with special attention given to such concerns as
academics and health.

regularly hold philanthropic events on and around campus, including our
annual Kite and Key Cook-Off in the fall and Kappa Charity Fashion Show

The Kite and Key Cook-Off Every
fall, Kappa Kappa Gamma puts on our
annual Cook-Off. All the Hopkins fraternities participate, competing to
grill the best burger. A number of other Hopkins student groups
contribute dishes as well. The winning fraternity is named the Champion
of the Grill and has all the proceeds donated to the Maryland Food Bank
in its name. The Cook-Off is a part of Greek Week and is attended by
most members of the Greek community a well as many Hopkin students.
