The stories of Kappa Alpha Psi’s “birth,” and its founders, are well known to all Kappa men; however, the Fraternity’s beginning in Seattle and the Puget Sound region is less known. 

The Seattle Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi was founded in September, 1954, by a group of Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity members who had relocated to the Seattle area. The chapter was the first graduate chapter of the fraternity in the Pacific Northwest region.

During its early years, the Seattle Alumni Chapter worked to establish itself as a leader in the Seattle community and to support the efforts of the national fraternity. The chapter’s members were involved in various community service projects, including providing scholarships to local high school students and supporting youth programs.

In the 1950s and 1960s, the Seattle Alumni Chapter became involved in the civil rights movement and worked to promote equal rights for African Americans. The chapter’s members participated in sit-ins and other demonstrations, and supported the efforts of local civil rights organizations.

Over the years, the Seattle Alumni Chapter has continued to be a leader in the Seattle community and has been involved in various community service and social activism initiatives. The chapter has also established partnerships with other organizations to support its mission and promote positive change in the Seattle area.


The Brothers of the Seattle Alumni Chapter, Western Province of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. are a non-profit, community based, achievement driven organization.

We take pride in awarding scholarships to college bound students, volunteering, making donations, and hosting social events that raise money for our various causes. Our membership consists of members initiated at college, university, and Alumni chapters from around the country and globe.

We are professionals, active and retired military members, who are leaders and Men of Achievement. We are excited about you visiting our website and please feel free to contact us.
