Pi Beta Phi Headquarters (HQ) is doing our part to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. Effective March 17, our HQ staff has gone to remote work status. While our office building has closed, we have not closed the office. We are set up to continue the day-to-day operations, including receiving calls and emails. We are working to minimize disruptions for our members, and do not expect delays in email and phone communications. However, incoming and outgoing postal mail will be delayed, including mail to our Foundation.
Though our physical office will be closed for the foreseeable future, our virtual office is open and our staff is available to assist you by phone, email, or teleconference. We are extremely grateful for your loyal support and we are committed to being responsive and supportive of our donor community during this time.
PI BETA PHI FOUNDATION
Emma Harper Turner Grants
In response to sisters who may find themselves in financial crisis related to Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its economic and social impact, Pi Beta Phi Foundation can provide Emma Harper Turner (EHT) Fund grants. These grants can assist with funding of treatment, isolation, wage loss and more.
If you know a sister who may need assistance, please encourage her to apply for a confidential grant here. Applicants should choose the email option for their completed applications instead of mail. Scanned or clear photos emailed from their phones are acceptable. Completed applications should be emailed to EHTFundChair@pibetaphi.org.
How To Make a Gift
As the Pi Beta Phi HQ building is closed, we will not be able to physically process gifts sent by mail, online giving is the most efficient way to support Pi Phi philanthropically at this time. For this reason, we ask that future contributions be submitted online through our secure website. For information on how to make payments through other means, please contact us by phone at (636) 256–1357 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We encourage members to stay aware and informed by reading any information shared by your college/university and monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website for details about the coronavirus, how it spreads and what you can do to help protect yourselves and your sisters.
