Pi Kappa Phi created Push America in 1977 to instill a sense of service in each of its young leaders. There are currently over 155 chapters of Pi Kappa Phi across 39 states (including the District of Columbia) with more than 7,500 undergraduates and 80,000 living alumni. Pi Kappa Phi is the only Greek organization to develop and maintain its own national philanthropy.
All chapters are encouraged to focus on three main areas with their Push America programming: Disability Awareness, Fundraising and Volunteerism.
Each year, chapters of Pi Kappa Phi hold events on their campus and in their community to raise funds and awareness for people with disabilities. Chapters raise $300,000 annually for Push America and dedicate thousands of hours of service to organizations that serve people with disabilities in their communities.
Push America provides opportunities for all members of Pi Kappa Phi, beginning with pre-initiation into the Fraternity, to have a rewarding, personal service experience that not only impacts the lives of people with disabilities, but also impacts them as well. Many alumni are still taking an active role in Push America programs and continue to show their passion for service.
Even nonmembers are getting involved with chapters by serving as a Push America Advisor, assisting with the planning and execution of events, getting chapters in contact with local businesses who may be interested in supporting them or helping to facilitate volunteer opportunities in the community. Push America is bringing everyone together to change the way society views people with disabilities and fraternities.
If you have any questions or would like to get involved with a local chapter of Pi Kappa Phi, please contact Push America’s Director of Chapter Services, Nick Breaux at firstname.lastname@example.org or (980) 318-5382.
