Literacy & Pi Beta Phi

Pi Beta Phi's signature philanthropy, Read > Lead > Achieve®, draws on a century of service and thousands of volunteers to inspire a lifelong love of reading. In current society, one in four children will grow up functionally illiterate.* Through the Read > Lead > Achieve reading initiatives, Pi Beta Phi will create a more literate and productive society.


The Literacy Fund at Pi Beta Phi Foundation plays a critical role in the success of Read > Lead > Achieve. Gifts to The Literacy Fund support all Pi Phi reading initiatives under Read > Lead > Achieve, including Champions are Readers®, Arrow in the Arctic, Fraternity Day of Service, Pi Phi’s First Book® Partnership and much more.

Click here to make a gift to The Literacy Fund or call (636) 256–1357 for more information. If you are making a donation by check, please make it payable to Pi Beta Phi Foundation, with "The Literacy Fund" in the memo line.

Chapters and alumnae clubs making donations to literacy should use the FT1 and FT2 Gift Forms, located in the Resource Library.

Read > Lead > Achieve and The Story of One

At the 2013 Convention, Pi Beta Phi launched The Story of One campaign. By the time Pi Beta Phi celebrates its 150th anniversary in 2017, Pi Beta Phi intends to impact 1 million lives through Read > Lead > Achieve and The Story of One. Click here to get involved.

As a part of The Story of One campaign, the Foundation has announced two new grant opportunities to support reading in our communities. Read about Local Impact Grants and Special Impact Grants here.
