    Participate … Donate … Advocate for Read > Lead > Achieve  


    In June 2017, Pi Beta Phi’s celebrated the conclusion of our campaign to impact 1 million lives through Read > Lead > Achieve. We believe when one in four children grow up to be illiterate, that is one too many. So Pi Phi is committed to building upon its legacy of literacy. We want to exercise our army of Pi Phi volunteers as literacy advocates. Every Pi Phi is an advocate, and each one of us can make a difference in the lives of children across the world.

    The Power of Reading

    At Pi Beta Phi, we believe in the power of reading.

    We believe reading always has been — and always will be — a powerful step toward a life of enduring impact. We believe that when one out of four children cannot read, that is one too many.

    We believe in inspiring readers, sparking imaginations and igniting the desire to learn. We believe that readers become leaders. And, we believe reading is the foundation of all that we can achieve in life.

    For more than a century, we’ve committed ourselves to creating a more literate and productive society. We’ve changed with the times, but never shifted our vision. So at Pi Beta Phi, we honor the past while we build for the future …

    One child … one moment at a time … one life changed forever
