Grow for the greater good!

BeardsGiving is Back!

Welcome to BeardsGiving 2023, an exclusive event for all current undergraduate members and esteemed alumni of Pi Kappa Phi! It's that time of the year when you can ditch the razors, embrace your inner lumberjack and grow out your beard for a great cause. The scruff you grow this season will raise much-needed funds for renovations and programming at Ability Experience Ability Camps—making a direct, positive impact on individuals living with disabilities. Be part of this year’s BeardsGiving and let your stubble make a statement!

BeardsGiving is a month-long fundraising event that celebrates more than just facial hair—it celebrates your spirit, your drive and your commitment to making a difference. Whether you can grow a full beard or just a few whiskers, your participation is what truly counts. It’s all about rallying your network to sponsor your venture for this worthy cause. Remember, it’s not the beard that impresses; it’s the passion and commitment behind it that encourages people to donate. So, beardless or bearded, join us to make an impact that extends far beyond your face!


Make a Difference: Ability Camps serve individuals with disabilities across the United States, and they need our support to keep offering these vital services.

Strengthen Brotherhood: Collectively ditch the razors and challenge your chapter brothers to grow for the greater good!

Rewards: Top fundraisers will receive exclusive Ability Experience merchandise!

Grow Your Beard: After shaving, put away your razors and let the beard grow! We encourage you to take before and after pictures and send it to us @AbilityExp.

Celebrate: At the end of the month, we’ll announce the top fundraisers and feature photos of our craziest beards. Above all, you can take pride in knowing that your beard will make a real difference for individuals living with disabilities across the United States.
