National Philanthropy

Alberto Rivera's Last Birthday Celebration

H.I.V./AIDS Research and Awareness

Since our inception, our brothers have given significant attention to its community service and philanthropy efforts. But in June of 1989, Alberto Rivera, one of our 20 founding fathers, passed away due to complications related to the HIV virus.

As a result of this tragedy, our brothers made the unanimous decision to honor his passing by promoting and supporting HIV & AIDS research and awareness and declaring it our national philanthropy.
