Through the FDS500 program, Pi Beta Phi annually awards grants to First Book® recipient groups nominated by Pi Phi chapters and alumnae clubs. The grants are used to purchase up to $2,000 worth of new books and school supplies from First Book, and the books and supplies are distributed to children in need. Like all Read > Lead > Achieve® initiatives, FDS500 grants are made possible by generous gifts to The Literacy Fund at Pi Beta Phi Foundation.
Thank you to the chapters and clubs that nominated organizations to receive a 2022-2023 FDS500 grant! Organizations that are selected to receive a grant will be notified in October 2022.
Nominations for FDS500 grants are now closed, but will reopen in September 2023. If you have questions about the FDS500 program or Pi Phi's Read > Lead > Achieve® initiatives, please contact our Program and Literacy Coordinator.
