I am excited to welcome you to the official website of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc., Beta Zeta Zeta Chapter, Cincinnati, Ohio. We are a diverse chapter with Sorors of all ages, backgrounds, talents and professional careers. We have members that have served or are currently serving on every level in the sorority, state, regional, and national.
The fabulous women of Beta Zeta Zeta Chapter have proudly served the Cincinnati area since our chartering in 1943, upholding the sorority’s founding principles of Scholarship, Service, Sisterhood, and Finer Womanhood. As our Sorority prepares for its 100th Anniversary in 2020, Beta Zeta Zeta Chapter is a Crystal Visionary Chapter, a donor for the Tyler Sisters Memorial in Dayton, OH and a donor for the 100th anniversary monument at Howard University.
We serve our community through participating in walks and fundraisers for Breast Cancer Awareness, St Jude, March of Dimes, American Cancer Society, Midwest Regional Black Family Reunion, among others.
We collect towels for a local YWCA Shelter which are used by survivors of domestic violence at local shelters. We also participate in community programs such as an HBCU College fairs, an Eldercare program at the Lincoln-Crawford Home, volunteer service at Matthew 25 Ministries and Operation Christmas Child/Samaritan’s Purse, and a Cocoa with a Black Santa event for the community.
Since the 1940s, Beta Zeta Zeta Chapter has awarded scholarships to young African American ladies graduating from Cincinnati area high schools at our Finer Womanhood Scholarship and Recognition Luncheon. To raise funds for our scholarships, current fundraisers have included the Blue Word and Sound Poetry Nights, and our 75th Anniversary Gala. Our scholarships are awarded every year in March.
The chapter proudly sponsors an auxiliary group called Amicae. These are service oriented women who do not have a four-year college degree and are not members of a Greek-letter organization. If you are interested in learning more about our Amicae group, please click here. Additionally, we are in the process of reactivating a youth auxiliary group for school age young ladies. If you are interested in learning more about our youth auxiliary group, please click here.
We are also the sponsoring graduate chapter for Beta Eta Chapter at the University of Cincinnati. If you are a college graduate interested in 2019 – 2020 membership, please click here.
In addition to service and programming, we love to fellowship and just “hang out” as sisters. Together we read the latest novels, rate the local restaurants, wind down at happy hour events, take on special projects, see the latest plays, and celebrate special occasions with each other.
We have a very close relationship with our brothers of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. Delta Theta Sigma chapter. We support their programs and events as well as other Divine Nine Greek Organizations. Feel free to browse our calendar and join us for events. We welcome support and participation from you, your family and friends at any of our upcoming community affairs.
