National Pan-Hellenic Council of Greater Fredericksburg (NPHC-FRED)
The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) is a collaborative organization of nine historically African-American international Greek lettered sororities and fraternities. The nine NPHC organizations are referred to as the "Divine Nine." The NPHC was formed on May 10, 1930, at Howard University in Washington, D.C.
NPHC-FRED was chartered on August 29, 2007, and is focused on civic engagement, community, economics, education, family, global issues, and health. Every year, the chapters come together for an All-Greek Church Fellowship and Worship. NPHC-Fred appreciates the generous community support for their fundraisers and service projects. May NPHC-Fred always "bless and give-back" to the community as they have been historically "blessed!"
