Each semester, we put on campus-wide philanthropy events supporting our philanthropy, Read > Lead > Achieve. Our signature event, Angels in the Endzone, is a flag football tournament we hold each Fall. We also sell lemonade, collect books, and educate the Quinnipiac community on national and local illiteracy facts during our week-long event, Lemonade for Literacy.

Members of Pi Beta Phi are also involved in many other clubs and organizations at Quinnipiac. Since the event's beginning, sisters have joined Quinnipiac students, alum, and faculty in the Big Event, a community day of service benefiting local schools, parks, and citizens. Members also raise money and participate in QTHON, a 10-hour dance marathon benefiting Connecticut Children's Medical Center. In 2018, we had the opportunity to sponsor a miracle child, Isabella, who had been treated at CCMC. Pi Beta Phi raised $3,899.90 out of the $265,431.79 raised for QTHON this year.
