As we look forward to our 100-year anniversary, what better time to invest in the home that served us so well.

Phi Chapter has played a role in shaping the lives of nearly 3,000 KU women during this time. It has helped young women experience the importance of teamwork, understand the value of philanthropy, become leaders in their careers and communities, and attain their goals.
