The "Why" Behind Alumnae Dues

Pi Phi is celebrating our first-ever Alumnae Dues Week October 9-13! Paying your alumnae dues is an investment that keeps our sisterhood strong for years to come. Below are just some of the reasons why Pi Phi alumnae feel inspired to fulfill their Lifelong Commitment by paying alumnae dues.

"I pay international dues as a way to give back to an organization that has provided so much to me, particularly as a collegian. I know my dues go to the sustainability of the organization across several facets." - Anonymous member

"I pay Fraternity dues so Pi Beta Phi can continue the important work it does for its members. From lifelong collegiate friends to new friends I have made in my alumnae club, being a Pi Phi has given me more than I could have ever imagined. I am happy to give to an organization that supports its members, has strong core values and promotes an atmosphere of women helping women and their communities." - Melanie Marvin Dillman, Mississippi Beta


"I pledged Lifelong Commitment and want to feel that I am honoring that promise. I have stayed involved locally in my alumnae club and AAC, and I enjoy receiving my copy of The Arrow for other Pi Phi news. I feel this is my responsibility to help support the overall organization." - Anonymous member

"The way I see it, my dues help pay it forward and ensure another young woman can enjoy their collegiate experience. Additionally, paying dues encourages our philanthropic efforts to increase literacy and education across the board that I believe increase anyone's quality of life." - Lora Yount Parker, Tennessee Gamma 

"I pay my dues because I sincerely admire the staff and hundreds of volunteers who strive to make Pi Beta Phi stronger every year, and I want to support their efforts. It’s a painless way to contribute to the Fraternity that I love." - Maja Tanaka Berge, Oregon Alpha


"I pay my Pi Phi dues every year so I can stay connected to this Fraternity of amazing women for my entire life.
