Back in Bloom
The Pansy Patch will be back in bloom in 2014, once again providing a simple, fun way to share your thoughts and thanks with others while supporting the Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation and helping Thetas all over the world aspire to attain highest scholarship, create the widest influence for good and demonstrate love.
How it Works
For just $5 you can purchase a pansy in celebration, honor or memory of your Theta sisters and an e-mail notification is sent to your honoree. Theta Foundation also has a pansy display at Grand Convention. In addition, both donors and honorees are provided with recognition badges to display on their nametags.
Raising the Stakes
Pansy Patch is also a competition between Theta chapters and districts. When you purchase a pansy you designate the district you want it to benefit.
How the Seed Was Planted
The Pansy Patch debuted as Theta Foundation's Grand Convention fundraiser in 2008. For the first time, Thetas, their families and friends could participate whether they were attending Convention or not-and so many did! By donating $5 for a special die-cut pansy to honor a sister or friend, Foundation donors created a huge Theta Pansy Patch at Convention. Walls full of pansies representing the affection sisters had for those who had made a difference in their Theta experience added color and caring to Grand Convention. Even parents, spouses and family members joined in the experience. In its inaugural year, more than 8,400 pansies were purchased, providing $42,000 in funding for Foundation programs. In 2012 the Pansy Patch had a record year with over $150,000 raised.About the KAΘ Foundation
