Chapter Challenge

Give Back Through Chapter Challenge
Chapter Challenge is Kappa Delta Pi’s signature philanthropic initiative for chapters. As a nonprofit organization, KDP relies on membership dues and the generosity of donors to fulfill our mission of supporting educators. We work to elevate teaching as a respected career choice, support teacher preparation programs and pre-K–12 students, and retain the best and brightest in education. Joining Chapter Challenge is a great opportunity to help KDP cultivate new programming, projects, and chapters.


Be Recognized for Helping Educators
Chapter Challenge is an annual fundraiser, and all participating chapters are recognized for their philanthropic efforts. In the 2017–2018 academic year, 152 chapters donated to KDP. You can make a difference for fellow educators and chapters around the world by supporting KDP through Chapter Challenge. We cannot fulfill our mission without your help!

  • Chapter Challenge: Chapters that raise $150 are acknowledged in the annual report, at Convocation 2019, and on KDP.org. A perpetual plaque is awarded the first year a chapter achieves Chapter Challenge, and year plates are added for each subsequent year of participation. This amount fulfills donation requirements for the ACE award application.*
  • Chapter Challenge Plus: Chapters that raise $250 or more receive distinguished recognition at the traditional Chapter Challenge level plus the following special recognition at Convo 2019:
    o A recognition ribbon for all chapter members in attendance
    o A special invitation for the Counselor to attend the President’s Reception

*Because ACE award applications are accepted at the end of a biennium’s Convocation (odd years), chapters are required to donate in both that year and the prior year. Donations and pledge payments made toward restricted funds, such as scholarships and chapter grants, are not included in your chapter’s Chapter Challenge total.
