The JHH Educational Foundation

The founder of the Society, John Hart Hunter, left behind a legacy of intellectualism and scholastic accomplishment. In keeping with this legacy, the Kappa Alpha Society established the John Hart Hunter Educational Foundation in 1989. The Foundation helps fund scholarships, educational programs, and housing for Kaps. Typically, at least two or three Kaps per chapter earn scholarships toward educational costs.

The John Hart Hunter Educational Foundation’s mission is comprised of seven guiding components:

  • Undergraduate Education.
  • Development of Leadership Skills.
  • Scholarship and Academic Achievement.
  • Endowment of Funding Educational Resources.
  • Preservation of Kappa Alpha Society Archives.
  • Development and Distribution of the JHH Educational Journal.
  • Prudently invest some Funds in Chapters for Capital Improvement.
