The Florida Delta chapter of Pi Beta Phi is the premier fundraising organization for the entire sorority. In 2012, our chapter was a top-10 fundraising chapter in the nation, and the only chapter to receive recognition six years in a row. We are devoted to our sorority nationally and the Gainesville community locally.
The ladies of Pi Beta Phi have always placed much importance on service in the community. Today, we value service and philanthropy more than ever. Nationally, Pi Beta Phi supports literacy and all proceeds go toward literacy programs such as CAR, Read Across America and an annual Speed Read benefiting First Book.
Our chapter at the University of Florida raises money and actively contributes to the community to help support these causes. To promote literacy, members of our chapter visit local elementary schools and read to younger children; we also donate reading supplies to underprivileged schools.
Florida Delta’s major fundraiser is called Down ‘N’ Dirty. It consists of a huge barbeque at the house and a flag football tournament, held each Spring. The gentlemen of University of Florida’s fraternities compete in the tournament to be named the overall winner of Down ‘N’ Dirty. The event is a lot of fun and yearly has the highest participation out of every sorority philanthropy on campus. Last year, we raised over $22,000 for First Book and the Pi Beta Phi Foundation.
