Alpha Delta Kappa Month/Founders' Day Central

Posted On Tuesday, October 3, 2017

Alpha Delta Kappa Month/Founders' Day Central

We come together to remember our Founders and to celebrate our membership in ALPHA DELTA KAPPA. It was through the vision, dedication, and actions of Agnes Shipman Robertson, Marion Southall, Marie Neal, and Hattie Poppino that the state of Missouri in 1947 issued a charter incorporating ALPHA DELTA KAPPA, allowing it to organize chapters in every state and around the globe. We honor our Founders!

Disaster Relief

Posted On Tuesday, October 3, 2017

Disaster Relief

Our sisters have been, and are being, affected by natural disasters in multiple locations. Let us keep them in our thoughts and prayers at this time as they assess their damage and work to move forward. There are many agencies who are moving to get supplies and assistance to those in need according to news reports. 

Keeping up with the weather and disasters of this magnitude is difficult at times.  Please keep in touch and let us know if you have something to be shared or reported regarding our Alpha Delta Kappa family. Let us pull together and embrace our sisters with support, love and care who are in need at this time.  What can we do?  

The Alpha Delta Kappa Foundation has a line item in its budget for disaster relief. Donations can be sent to HQ written to the Alpha Delta Kappa Foundation and you can indicate on the subject/memo line “disaster relief” or more specifically to an S/P/N (ex:  Louisiana flooding).  Online donations may also be made through the website. When it is specific to a S/P/N, those monies will be sent to the S/P/N treasurer and that S/P/N Disaster Relief Committee will decide how to distribute the funds to assist our members affected.  A donation with only “disaster relief” will go into the fund and be distributed as needed depending on the number of inquiries. Your donation is tax deductible and you will receive a donation statement for tax purposes in January. 

A note about membership badges lost in natural disasters:  If chapters have extra badges in their badge banks, please send them to International Headquarters (1615 W 92nd St, Kansas City, MO 64114) with a personal note to a sister who may have lost hers in a disaster, and we will see that they are appropriately distributed.

IRS: Filing the IRS E-Postcard (990-N)

IRS: Filing the IRS E-Postcard (990-N)

**Phishing scheme**:
We have recently learned that there is a 990-N e-Postcard phishing scheme out there, where chapters are getting emails disguised as if they are coming from Headquarters with a link to file the 990-N e-Postcard.  The link is to a false IRS site, and when they try to file it tells them they either owe money to the IRS or have to pay money to file.
