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.
