The Make-A-Wish Foundation
the Chi Omega national philanthropy
A formal alliance between Chi Omega and the Make-A-Wish Foundation began in 2002. Since then, Chi Omegas have raised more than $12.9 million and over 500,000 volunteer hours for Make-A-Wish!
The Downtown Chicago Chi Omega Alumnae Chapter supports the Make-A-Wish Foundation through:
Sales of our March Madness Brackets
Hosting a Wish Child at our annual Eleusinia Tea
Guest Bartending events
Our annual Wine for Wishes event
Our Fraternity's goal is to have both collegiate and alumnae chapters become increasingly involved in volunteering and fundraising for Make-A-Wish and to assist in the granting of wishes to these courageous kids. Through this, all Chi Omegas can understand the importance of service to others as a founding principle of our Sisterhood.
A wish granted not only provides hope, strength and joy to a child and their family, but it can provide a wish child with the ability and willingness to comply with difficult medical treatments, and the hope gained by that wish often improves a child's physical health.
