Make-A-Wish Foundation
The Make-A-Wish Foundation is Chi Omega Fraternity's National Philanthropy. Since the start of our alliance, Chi Omegas have made a difference in many children's lives through volunteering time, talents, and dollars. The Make-A-Wish Foundation has honored Chi Omega for the incredible volunteer efforts of our members.

Here's an easy way to contribute to MAW.  Just take a few minutes to write a letter to Santa via the following link.  Write one for a child you know or for a friend or for yourself - heck, write one for THE WORLD!   Each letter sends $1 to MAW.

Make-A-Wish Annual Walk for Wishes at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo was on Sat. July 16, 2016.  We again had a Team Chi Omega participating in this event.  East and west alumnae along with local collegians form the team.   Those who know they cannot walk are encouraged to donate to our team by contributing online to one of our members.   Will you join us or support us this year? Watch for announcement of this year's date and more info. For a direct link to Make-A-Wish Team Chi Omega registration,  Click here  (coming soon)


These team tee shirts are available until 6/25. Front says " Team Chi Omega" ; Back says "When it comes to  granting wishes for us it's OWL or nothing".  Cost is $15 plus shipping + tax.  Contact Nancy if interested.  We hope a group order will share the $13.88 shipping fee.

To celebrate our 3,000th wish granted to northeast Ohio kids and the official start of summer.


December once again was the the month for our Mini raffle for Make-A-Wish. On December 7, 2013 the chance raffle for "3 OWLLY" prizes raised $59 for Make-a-Wish!  Thank YOU!

Thanks to all who participated in the Chance Raffle for Make-A-Wish at the Christmas Brunch at Saturday 12/15/2012.  Proceeds from the  Tree raffle were donated to MAW.
  • Make-A-Wish Walk for Wishes at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo was on July 20, 2013.  TEAM CHI OMEGA is again participating as a combination of all Chi O's in the Cleveland area.  You  may contribute by sending your donation to MAW in care of our treasurer, Sandi Russ. 

    Cleveland East Alumnae were honored with an award for 5 continuous years of supporting MAW at the 2008 St. Louis  Convention.   Only one other alum group was also honored.  Yes, it was Cleveland West! 

  • Daniel, our second wish child, joined us for the Zoo Walk. He and his family enjoyed a trip to Disneyworld. Our first adopted wish child, Andrew, enjoyed his trip to Legoland. Sadly, we have learned that he died last fall. We are happy that he had his wish granted.

  • TEAM CHI OMEGA (the joint active-alumnae philanthropy team of Cleveland E&W and John Carroll and Kent)was honored with a sisterhood award at convention in San Antonio.
