Phi Iota Alpha takes steps toward a Pan-American society
Today, Phi Iota Alpha Fraternity, Inc. is proud to announce that after many months of planning we have taken our first step in reaching out to the global community through the great efforts of UNICEF. Throughout the month of October our chapters, colonies and alumni through out the nation will work together to raise funds through the Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF campaign, now celebrating it's 60th year.
All donations collected through the Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF campaign will go towards the UNICEF USA Fund which works around the world where there is the most need. This means donations collected will go to help:
Children with HIV/ AIDS
Children suffering from bacteria born diseases
Children who lack clean water and basic education and many more worthy projects which save children’s lives everyday
In alignment with our goals we will commit to adopting a UNICEF sponsored cause in Latin America by 2012. It is Phi Iota Alpha’s intention that over the next two years we will build a global outreach program strong enough to support our desire to cultivate prosperity in some of the areas in Latin America most in need.
In order for us to reach this goal, we need your support both on our local campus level and nationally.
You can support this effort by:
Visiting www.phiota.info and clicking on the Trick or Treat for UNICEF banner
Donating to UNICEF via your local Phi Iota Alpha representative
Joining efforts with your local Phi Iota Alpha chapter or colony
We thank you for your continued support and we look forward to building a brighter world one small step at a time.

UNICEF has saved more children's lives than any other humanitarian organization in the world. Working in more than 150 countries, UNICEF provides children with health care, clean water, nutrition, education, emergency relief, and more. The U.S. Fund for UNICEF supports UNICEF's work through fundraising, advocacy, and education in the United States.
UNICEF is at the forefront of efforts to reduce child mortality worldwide. There has been substantial progress: the annual number of under-five deaths dropped from 13 million in 1990 to 8.8 million in 2008. But still, 22,000 children die each day from preventable causes. Our mission is to do whatever it takes to make that number zero by giving children the essentials for a safe and healthy childhood. For more information, visit www.unicefusa.org.
Since 1931, Phi Iota Alpha has set precedents for Latino greek leadership in the global community. For over 75 years, Phi Iota Alpha has cultivated and inspired Latino men nationwide to become leaders of their communities across Latin America and the United States. Open to all men, this distinguished brotherhood includes many professionals and former presidents of Latin American countries. Today Phi Iota Alpha, the Oldest Latino Fraternity in existence, continues to lead as the preeminent Latino fraternal organization with chapters throughout the United States.
