Our comprehensive digital preservation services ensure that your history won’t go up in flames or be lost in a fire. Your stories will be permanently preserved and easily shared in a digital museum.
From recruitment and alumni communications to fundraising — sharing your stories can have a significant impact.
“The treasures that Kappas have meticulously collected for the last 150 years have been given new life and can be shared with future generations long after VHS tapes can no longer be played or hand lettered ledgers become unreadable. Connections are being made and conclusions are being drawn on a daily basis.”
Maggie Sims CoonsExecutive Director of Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation
