It all started when…

Chi Kappa Phi Service Society, a nonprofit, was founded on May 30, 2013 by the Co-Founders, Tiffany Chan and Carolyn Ellis. These best friends share a passion of giving back to the community while fostering long-lasting friendships. Their vision is to inspire a lifelong dedication to philanthropic service.

This dream would not have been possible without the support and expertise of their founding Executive Board (pictured above)- Dani Adix, Director of Bookkeeping; Katie Young, Director of Philanthropy; Amanda Meriwether, Director of Public Relations; and Jenny Scouller, Director of Recruitment.

Our first round of recruitment took place the Fall semester of 2013. We recruit annually at the beginning of the Fall semester of every school year at the University of Texas at Austin.

Hope to see you in the Fall.

Be a Chickadee. Join Chi Kappa Phi!

Look for the bow!


Ever wondered how to spot an active KPhi Chickadee on campus? Just keep your eyes peeled for a white lace bow with a chickadee charm in the lower right hand corner. Active chickadees often wear their official KPhi bow in their hair to symbolize their involvement in the society and dedication to its three pillars: character, trust, and philanthropy.
