Why Membership Matters


Have your ever pondered why your membership in Delta Kappa Gamma matters? Our vision statement clearly defines why our membership matters: Leading Women Educators Impacting Education Worldwide.

Annie Webb Blanton believed in the power of education and members across the world are impacting the lives of students today around the world.

DKG believes in our members because we provide scholarships or grants to further their personal educations on the chapter, state, and international levels. International and state organizations created foundations to provide money for our members and non-members to attend conferences, purchase resources for classrooms, work on advanced degrees and certifications. Members in DKG donate and fundraise to support these worthy programs.

Another focus of the Society is on Early Career Educators. Chapters around the globe encourage beginning teachers by providing notes of encouragement, treats, school supplies and money to these young educators. Yes, members are impacting students around the globe by supporting and mentoring early career educators.

Since 2010, DKG has been supporting Schools for Africa by raising awareness of the needs of children in Africa. Members provide programs and raise money to send to this worthy cause. Caring members are encouraging students we have never met but are creating a better environment for others.

The DKG Emergency Fund has provided our members with $500 when they have been affected by flood, tornadoes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters.

In 1979, to celebrate the Society’s 50th Anniversary, the Golden Gift Fund was established. This committee sponsors the Leadership Management Seminar, DKG Ignite, to train our members to be stronger leaders.

Membership matters because members are passionate about making the world a better place to live and work. Members matter because your dues and donations create a ripple effect that spreads globally.
