In 2015, Phi Sigma Pi National Honor Fraternity decided to enter into a philanthropic partnership with Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership. Ever since we have been fostering a relationship of volunteerism, service and support that has benefited both of our organizations in big ways. In 2017, the Grand Chapter voted to officially name HOBY our National Philanthropy.

“Our respective organizations were formed and evolved completely independent of each other, but the similarities in our values and goals are reflected in one another’s desires to enhance the experiences of young adults...I believe we not only complement each other organizationally but can help one another grow and become stronger together! HOBY and Phi Sigma Pi want to help make our communities a better place and together we are stronger.” - Patrick Herron, Former Vice President of Philanthropy Development
