Alpha Epsilon Pi's Official Philanthropy Program
The Alpha Epsilon Pi Official Philanthropy Program (OPP) is committed to supporting Jewish causes to reinforce the Jewish ideal of Tikkun Olam – repairing the world. As an international fraternity, we recognize the role the Jewish people around the world have played in shaping our brothers’ lives. Through our philanthropic endeavors, Alpha Epsilon Pi strives to give back to the Jewish community using the Repair the World Fund to benefit organizations around the world. We aim to give back through the OPP and foster the development of our brothers into responsible citizens as they become the Jewish leaders of tomorrow.
In order to repair the world, the AEPi OPP holds the following values in highest priority:
- Providing assistance to those without adequate resources
- Supporting the fight against debilitating disease
- Developing education
- Strengthening Jewish identity
- Providing opportunities for youth
- Worldwide disaster relief
At our 101st International Convention in Toronto, Canada, Alpha Epsilon Pi began a new, $1,000,000 commitment to 10 Jewish organizations. The goal is to raise the $100,000 for each organization over the next 5 years. However, AEPi has a habit of meeting our goals earlier than expected! Our previous pledge of $700,000 had a goal of 7 years, but we finished it in only 4 years!
The Repair the World Fund currently supports 10 Beneficiaries. These organizations are BBYO, B’nai B’rith’s Disaster Relief Program, Gift of Life, Heroes to Heroes, Israel Children’s Cancer Foundation, IDF Widows & Orphans Organization, Innovation: Africa, MadaTech Museum, Simon Wiesenthal Center, and Birthright Israel.
