Local Philanthropy

The Atlanta Alumnae Club of Pi Beta Phi works hard to make a difference in the lives of children in the Atlanta metro area. Each year, we volunteer to help children learn to read through the Champions Are Readers program and donate a portion of our budget to local nonprofit organizations working to promote literacy.

 

READ>LEAD>ACHIEVE 
Atlanta is very lucky to be hosting a free literacy advocacy training in partnership with the Barbara Bush Foundation. Pi Phis learned more about becoming an advocate for literacy in our own community!

Reach Out and Read Georgia Partnership  
Reach Out and Read Georgia is dedicated to preparing our state’s youngest children to succeed in school by partnering with doctors to prescribe books and encourage families to read together. With nearly eighty program sites at hospitals, clinics, and doctor’s offices throughout the state, Reach Out and Read Georgia provides 80,000 children and their families in 28 counties with free books and resources that promote early childhood literacy.

The Atlanta Alumnae Club of Pi Beta Phi was recently selected to receive a collection of books through the FDS500 Program. We award 500 new books to Reach Out and Read Georgia so they can distribute to children through their network of pediatricians.

We also hold multiple events to support the local organization:


Fraternity Day of Service   

The annual March event coordinated with “Georgia Reads Aloud Day” during the week of Dr. Seuss’ birthday. The Atlanta Alumnae Club will read to elementary school children at a number of local elementary schools and Reach Out and Read Georgia clinics.
