Pansy Patch Is Back!
What Is Pansy Patch?
Pansy Patch is Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation’s official Grand Convention Fundraiser. And the best part is, you don’t have to attend Grand Convention to participate; in fact, you don’t even have to be a Theta! For just $5, Thetas, parents, spouses, and friends can purchase a pansy in honor of the Thetas they love and care for. These gifts not only create a spectacular Pansy Patch at Grand Convention; they are also an investment toward strengthening and protecting our beloved and evolving Fraternity.
When you purchase a pansy, you’re leading the way for educational, leadership, and philanthropic programs of the Fraternity and the scholastic, professional, and service pursuits that help Thetas reach their fullest potential and make a difference in the world.
Not only are pansies Kappa Alpha Theta’s flower, they also stand for so much more! The word “pansy” comes from the French word pensée meaning “thought.” This exemplifies the thoughtfulness of donors who give to honor the Thetas in their lives. If every Theta purchased just one pansy, we would raise more than $1 million for our Fraternity, sisters, and the causes Thetas care about. Multiply that for every parent, spouse, or friend who buys a pansy, and you can imagine the impact! Take a moment to think of a Theta who means something to you. Think of what it would mean to her to have you support her dreams. Let’s see what we can accomplish when the Leading Women of Kappa Alpha Theta and their supporters work together!
