Pi Beta Phi
Local Philanthropic Service

In 1998, we established The Arrow Foundation of the Northern Virginia Alumnae Club, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit, to support local and Fraternity-wide philanthropic efforts in literacy, leadership, and education. Since its incorporation, and through the fundraising efforts of NVAC members, The Arrow Foundation has donated over $100,000 to community literacy groups and Pi Beta Phi philanthropies. 

The foundation's main fundraising initiative is the biennial Literacy Ball, a gala event open to the community that in 2018 raised $23,735 to benefit local and national organizations.

The foundation currently supports the following organizations: 

  • Hybla Valley Elementary School, a Title 1 school in Alexandria, VA)
  • Greater DC Diaper Bank, which provides a reliable and adequate source of basic baby needs and personal hygiene products
  • Ayuda, which provides legal, social, and language services to vulnerable immigrants in the DMV
  • First Book, a national organization that provides new books to children in need
  • Alexandria Tutoring Consortium, a non-profit organization that recruits and trains volunteers to tutor kindergarten and first grade students who are deficient in reading skills
  • The Literacy Fund at the Pi Beta Phi Foundation​​​​​​​
