Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc.
Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. and the March of Dimes have been working together throughout the country since the 1980s. In the past, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. and March of Dimes chapters conducted project SATAP, Sigmas Against Teen-Age Pregnancy. In 2001, the relationship was revamped and today all fraternity chapters across the country are requested to implement the revised program called Building Strong Fathers Program at least once a year.
With a motto of "Culture for Service and Service for Humanity," Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. helps the March of Dimes achieve its mission to improve birth outcomes, and reduce racial and ethnic disparities.
Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. was founded in 1914 at Howard University on the principles of brotherhood, scholarship and service. Over 110,000 members comprise 650 chapters throughout the continental United States, Switzerland and Africa. Predominantly African American, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. boasts a membership dedicated to enhancing and promoting systematic fellowship, African American freedom, justice, equal rights and service. Unlike any other Greek organization, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. is constitutionally bound to a sister organization, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., which is also a March of Dimes partner.
