Push America is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that
serves people with disabilities. Push America was founded in 1977 as the
national philanthropy of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity with the purpose of instilling
lifelong service in its members and enhancing the quality of life for people
with disabilities. Although the organization is still fulfilling the purpose for
which it was intended, Push America has grown into a nationally recognized
nonprofit with numerous programs educating undergraduates, alumni and
communities about the abilities of people with disabilities.
Push America’s mission is, “Building leaders of tomorrow by
serving people with disabilities today,” which has been fulfilled for more than
35 years. Although lives have been changed, Push America’s vision to “Change the
way society views people with disabilities and fraternities” remains unchanged.
Through programs of all kinds, participants display Push
America’s four core values (abilities, teamwork, empathy and integrity) while
serving others. Although the funds raised are invaluable, just as important is
an increased awareness of the amazing things people with disabilities can do,
as opposed to focusing on what they can’t.
