The Kappa Foundation of Chattanooga, a 501(c)3 organization, is currently conducting a fundraising campaign to fully fund the renovation and multi-purpose room addition to the Kappa House. The Kappa House serves as a meeting place for Fraternity programs as well as a meeting place for several Alumni and Community organizations. We greatly appreciate all donations which are tax deductible.
KAPPA HOUSE RENOVATION
The Chattanooga Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi was chartered June 1, 1946 and initially held its meetings at the homes of Kappamen until May 1965 when the Chapter purchased the Fraternity house at 1014 E. Martin Luther King Boulevard, formally East 9th St. Historically, the Kappa house once served as a female dormitory, cafeteria, and Chapel for ZION COLLEGE, which was a Black Business and Religious oriented college.
The Kappa Foundation of Chattanooga is asking members of the Fraternity and others who have visited or used the Kappa House to come together and support the future of the Kappa Foundation and the Kappa House. This includes Chattanooga Alumni Chapter members current and past, and their families, members of Lambda Iota current and past including the parents, businesses and foundations.
If the walls of the Kappa House would speak, they would tell the stories of humble beginnings filled with rich traditions. They’d share tales of success and challenges. But most of all, they’d talk about how junior high, high school and college students from all walks of life have come together to overcome adversity and excel on so may levels.
The Kappa Foundation has a tradition of excellence in the community by being one of the groups that started the Hamilton County Minority Health Fair (now in it’s 17th year). The Kappa Foundation has two Scholarship Programs/Funds for students in Hamilton County, the John P. Franklin Sr. Scholarship and the Kappa League Scholarship Fund. The Kappa House serves as a meeting place for Fraternity programs as well as a meeting place for several Alumni and Community organizations.
