About Us

Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated was founded on January 16, 1920 on the campus of Howard University by five trailblazing women. Since the beginning, the sorority has pioneered a number of “firsts” among the established black sororities. In addition to being the only organization constitutionally bound to a fraternity (Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Incorporated), the sorority was the first to charter international chapters (West Africa and Germany), to form adult and youth auxiliary groups, and to organize its internal affairs within a central office, administered by a paid staff. Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated is a private non-profit organization and is incorporated in Washington, D.C., USA.

Grounded on the principles of Scholarship, Service, Sisterhood and Finer Womanhood, we strive to demonstrate them in all that we do. Zeta Phi Beta’s purpose is to foster the ideals on which we stand. These ideals are proven in the sorority’s programs and local outreach where its members dedicate numerous hours to voluntary service, fund scholarships, and support organized charities.

With more than 120,000 members initiated, members of Zeta are called to a higher purpose of Finer Womanhood. Zeta women are achievers and leaders in every field in more than 800 communities across the United States, Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and Europe. We are proud of what Zeta has done and what Zeta continues to do.
