Championing the abilities of all

Together we’re helping to change the way society views people with disabilities and fraternities. Because labels should not define us. We prefer to put our values into action, bringing our mission for a more inclusive community to life every single day.

None of our events or programs are possible without the generous partnerships and financial support of donors and companies like ICF. We are extremely thankful for you time and interest in learning more about our work to create a more inclusive world. You are now a part of this great big family of ours and we look forward to partnering with you to promote the abilities of ALL people!

The Ability Experience is the philanthropic initiative of Pi Kappa Phi fraternity that remains, to this day, an unparalleled success in the Greek world. Founded in 1977, we strive to instill a passion for lifelong service in our fraternity members while helping to empower and support people living with disabilities.

Our Mission

We use shared experiences to support people with disabilities and develop the men of Pi Kappa Phi into servant leaders.

Our Vision

Create a community, one relationship at a time, where the abilities of all people are recognized and valued.

Our Values

Abilities, Teamwork,
Empathy and Integrity

Developing Servant Leaders

True leaders empower others — and learn through experience. As the only national fraternity to establish and maintain its own non-profit organization, we pride ourselves in taking the lead when we see a need and have set the fraternal standard for hands-on, service-based leadership training. Through The Ability Experience participants are taught how to be an effective leader and work better as a team. Together, we all learn that it really is far greater to give than receive.

Your gift helps develop more servant leaders in our communities by creating volunteer opportunities and shared experiences between people with and without disabilities.

Disability Awareness

Disability doesn’t mean ‘inability’. People with disabilities often have to do things a little differently. By promoting an understanding of another person’s situation, feelings, thoughts and attitudes, we believe a more inclusive community and world can be possible. For The Ability Experience, the primary method of fostering empathy for others is through shared experiences. Individuals gain firsthand experience and a better perspective of each other when they spend time together.


With over 160 chapters fundraising a total of over $600,000 annually for The Ability Experience, Pi Kappa Phi truly excels beyond all other fraternities in philanthropic fundraising.

Creative fundraising events like bike-a-thons, scaffold sits and pageants have helped the brothers of Pi Kappa Phi collectively fundraise over $20 million in support of The Ability Experience’s programs. These funds are distributed across the country to benefit people with disabilities and provide more service opportunities for the men of Pi Kappa Phi.


There’s no better way to learn about people with disabilities than through direct interaction. When volunteering, members get to truly see the person first and realize their abilities. Volunteer relationship activities include anything from bowling, holiday parties, lending a hand to fix things around their facilities or even being part of a buddy program with someone with a disability. The possibilities are endless and both the chapter members and people with disabilities always benefit from the experience.


The common TEAM acronym that “Together, Everyone Achieves More” is the core of The Ability Experience Challenge program. Pairing athletes with and without disabilities together on a Push Assist/Duo Team pushes athletes to go further than they may have thought they could go and compete in endurance events across the country from a 5k to a marathon! Whether athletes run, walk or roll, The Ability Experience is helping to create more inclusive endurance events to showcase the abilities of ALL people.

Walk, Run and/or Roll with The Ability Experience

Financial support from companies like ICF and donors like YOU allow all of us to work together, alongside our friends with disabilities, to promote acceptance and inclusion for people of ALL abilities!

ICF is committed to building a more prosperous and resilient world for all.  We at The Ability Experience are honored to work alongside dedicated partners like ICF to create more inclusive communities and we look forward to making an impact together!
