A formal planned giving program is in place for members who are committed to the same mission as the Founders of Alpha Delta Kappa. These members help ensure the future of Alpha Delta Kappa’s scholarships and altruistic programs by making gifts either during their lifetime or through their estate plans. Gifts may be made as cash donations or deferred through an estate plan. Deferred gifts may include: bequests, life insurance, real estate, securities, trusts. etc.
Hall of Benefactors
Members who make current cash gifts of $500 or more become members of the Hall of Benefactors. Names are recorded in the Hall of Benefactors book maintained at Headquarters and published in the KAPPAN and on the International Website.
Members who notify Headquarters that a provision for the Foundation has been made in a will or estate plan become members of the Heritage Society. Names are published in the KAPPAN and on the International Website, and, once the gift is received from the estate, the name is added to the Hall of Benefactors book.
Memorial and Recognition Fund
Members make donations throughout the year in memory, recognition or honor of members, friends and loved ones. Members often use this fund in lieu of sending flowers. Along with your donation, please include the necessary information about the person being memorialized or honored so the donations and acknowledgments will be processed accurately.
Leadership Legacy Fund
This fund was established so that members, chapters and state/provincial/national organizations could honor past and present Alpha Delta Kappa leaders at all levels. Forms are available in the KAPPAN. Donations must be received by September 15 or March 15 to be listed in the next issue of the KAPPAN. Minimum donation: $100 per honoree.
International Presidents’ Fund
A donation to this fund may be made to honor or memorialize the current or past International Presidents. Upon receiving the donation, the president’s name, date of the biennium in which she served and the name of the donor is engraved on the International Presidents’ Fund plaque maintained at Headquarters. Minimum donation: $100 per honoree.
