Kappa Sigma (ΚΣ) is an international fraternity with currently 235 active chapters and 32 colonies in North America. There have been more than 245,000 initiates, of which more than 188,000 are living and more than 12,900 are undergraduates. It is currently the leader of all American fraternities in terms of pledges and new initiates per year, service hours, and philanthropic donations.[1] It has the oldest continuous endowment fund which has donated $4.5 million to undergrads since its inception in 1919.
