The University of South Carolina Colony of Kappa Delta Chi Sorority, Incorporated is excited about our 1st Annual fundraising event, Esperanza Gala and Art Auction. In order for this event to be successful, we depend on receiving sponsorships and generous donations for the cause from supporters in the community. The positive response of donors will allow us to create a DACA Scholarship Fund aiding low-income applicants in the Columbia/ Midlands area.
DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is an American immigration policy that provides temporary relief from deportation and a renewable 2-year work permit for qualified young adults who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children. If approved, DACA-mented youth can receive a Social Security Number, a Driver’s License, eligibility for higher education, and apply for jobs.
We firmly believe that communities become great and businesses thrive where equal opportunity is deemed important, because the lives of its citizens are enriched. The USC Colony of Kappa Delta Chi Sorority, Incorporated seeks to provide such enrichment to the community by promoting educational, cultural, civic, and economic opportunities for undocumented youth through this initiative. We believe, through this financial scholarship we can cultivate the skills and talents of youth to become leaders for the betterment of their communities.
All proceeds raised prior to and throughout our Gala will go towards our scholarship fund. A donation as small as $5 can go a long way when we are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of others.
