About Pi Kappa Phi

Pi Kappa Phi is an American social fraternity. It was founded by Andrew Alexander Kroeg Jr., Lawrence Harry Mixson, and Simon Fogarty Jr. on December 10, 1904 at the College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina. The fraternity has 169 active chapters (154 chartered chapters and 15 associate chapters), an average chapter size of 55, and more than 113,000 initiated members. Pi Kappa Phi operates its own philanthropy, Push America, which works with individual chapters to serve people with disabilities. Push America hosts a number of national events including Journey of Hope, a 4,100-mile bicycle ride across the United States, and Build America, a traveling construction team around the U.S. to camps that help children with disabilities. Both raise money and awareness for people with disabilities. In 1904, the College of Charleston was a small, municipal college.
