Becoming A Beneficiary
The beneficiary selection process begins in September with Association Members nominating non-profit 501(c)(3) agencies to be considered. Nominated agencies are researched by members of the Dallas Alumnae Association of Kappa Kappa Gamma's Philanthropy Committee, and in January the committee selects the Tablescapes beneficiaries. Those agencies selected as beneficiaries will receive proceeds from the Kappa Tablescapes event that occurs later in that year, in October. Funds are presented to agencies the following spring.
To be eligible for nomination, an agency must be a 501(c)(3) non-profit agency serving constituents, citizens, and/or organizations in Dallas County. Each agency is required to meet with a Philanthropy Committee Researcher and provide required documentation and financial information, including the agency's 501(c)(3) letter and financial statements from the current and previous two years. The process, from nomination to being selected as a beneficiary to receiving proceeds from the Kappa Tablescapes event, takes approximately a year and a half.
