Pi Beta Phi was founded locally in 1898 by several ambitious young women. Among these women was Grace Goodhue, later Grace Coolidge first lady of the United States. Our chapter house is home to seventeen chapter members who live and work together. We employ a chef and cleaning staff for the chapter members as well as a House Director who lives with and offers assistance to the women in the house. Our house is an historical landmark in the state of Vermont which means it has not Been changed since its construction.
Pi Beta Phi Fraternity was founded at Monmouth College in Monmouth, Illinois, on April 28, 1867, as I.C. Sorosis. Pi Beta Phi was the first national secret college society of women to be modeled after the Greek-letter fraternities of men. During a time when few women were admitted to colleges and universities, Pi Beta Phi created a feeling of unity among pioneering women. Currently, Pi Phi has 130 chapters in the United States and Canada.

Pi Beta Phi is dedicated to philanthropic and community service efforts that will remove the barrier of illiteracy.
This means we support literacy in a number of ways: through unique partnerships with organizations, through financial backings, through club and chapter programming and so much more.
The sisters of Vermont Beta volunteer in a third grade classroom at JFK Elementary School. Every day sisters assist the students in this classroom with math, reading, and writing. In addition to the daily volunteering, the sisters of Vermont Beta also attend Fraternity Day of Service. Since 2005, Pi Phi’s have been giving their time, talents and treasures to their local communities to promote reading in honor of Fraternity Day of Service on or around March 2. Through Read > Lead > Achieve initiatives like Fraternity Day of Service, Pi Phi’s make a huge impact in their communities by creating awareness around the importance of reading to children and providing service to others. On this day all of our sisters volunteer in several classrooms at JFK Elementary and assist the students in a special project.
