Pi Beta Phi Foundation

Pi Beta Phi Foundation is uniquely focused on helping Pi Beta Phi fulfill its mission — promoting friendship, developing women of intellect and integrity, cultivating leadership potential and enriching lives through community service.

As a premier organization for women, we've worked to support and empower our sisters since 1867. Our Foundation secures the resources Pi Phi needs to ensure that work continues. Our sisterhood needs the constant care of every member to ensure future generations of women benefit from the support of sincere friends and the inspiration to achieve our goals.

Investing in our Sisterhood

Because grants from our Foundation provide critical funding for every Pi Phi program, your gifts to our Foundation are investments in every Pi Phi sister and every aspect of the Pi Phi member experience.


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.
