Eta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated is a national Business and Professional Women's Organization. It was organized in 1942, in Detroit Michigan, by eleven business women who had attended Lewis Business College. The initial purposes of the Sorority were to help female high school graduates by awarding scholarships; to provide assistance to programs designed to help mentally handicapped citizens; and develop closer fellowship among business and professional women. The first Shad Club of Eta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated, was organized in 1949 in Detroit, Michigan. The Grand Chapter of Eta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated was established in Detroit, Michigan in 1954. The Sorority's National project is mentally handicapped children. The Sorority contributes to the United Negro College Fund (UNCF), NAACP, Urban League, March of Dimes, United Way Drive, YW & YMCA, Boys & Girls Scouts of America, National Council of Negro Women (NCNW), and other worthwhile civic projects. The aims of the Sorority are to have enough wisdom to think in the right channels with enough perception to see an opportunity, enough judgment to apprise it, and enough energy to embrace and make use of it.
