Investing in our Sisterhood

Because grants from our Foundation provide critical funding for every Pi Phi program, your gifts to our Foundation ensure the values, traditions and shared experiences that define Pi Phi sisterhood will be shared with more women today and for years to come.


All Pi Phi leadership development opportunities — from College Weekend and the Leadership Development Consultant program to Pi Beta Phi Leadership Institute and Leading with Values® — are supported by our Foundation.


Gifts to our Foundation in support of literacy play a critical role in the success of Pi Phi’s Read > Lead > Achieve® initiatives, inspiring a lifelong love of reading. All Pi Phi literacy programs are fully funded by grants from our Foundation.


The opportunity to learn and grow together with sisters comes once in a lifetime. Through Educational Area Grant Program and Chapter House Improvement Program funds, our Foundation helps create housing that supports a premier member experience.


More than 120 Pi Beta Phi collegians and alumnae receive academic scholarships from our Foundation each year. These scholarships help women achieve their academic goals, preparing them to be leaders in Pi Phi and their communities.
