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.



The Gamma Kappa Chapter has donated 959 hours and $11858.58 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation®!

We are so proud to announce our first ever Walk for Wishes event was a HUGE success!

Over $10,300 was raised to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation® and to help grant the wish of a boy and his family!

Thank you to everyone for your support and we hope to see you out there with us next year!



Our Story
It all began on April 5, 1895, at the University of Arkansas when four young women, with the help of a local dentist, established the secrets and symbolism that today bind over 260,000 women. This small band of women founded Chi Omega after realizing a need for an organization that would foster both friendship and respect for the potential and inherent value of women. Over the years, Chi Omega has provided its members with unique opportunities in leadership, scholarship, and lifelong friendship - striving to provide each Sister with a commitment to personal integrity, excellence in academic and intellectual pursuits, intergenerational participation, community service, leadership opportunities and social enrichment.






The Gamma Kappa Chapter of Chi Omega at Western Illinois University was founded on January 22, 1983. Since then, the young wom en of Gamma Ka ppa have conti nued to grow together in sisterhood and contribute to the community and their campus.

Symphony
The Chi Omega Symphony has reflected the purposes of Chi Omega members since its composition in 1904 by Ethel Switzer Howard on the eve of her initiation into the Xi Chapter of Chi Omega at Northwestern University.

The women of Gamma Kappa, along with every Chi Omega, carry the symphony in their heart and exemplify the standards and virtues that the symphony stands for.

crest_3c.gifTo live constantly above snobbery of word or deed; to place scholarship before social obligations and character before appearances; to be, in the best sense, democratic rather than 'exclusive', and lovable rather than 'popular'; to work earnestly, to speak kindly, to act sincerely, to choose thoughtfully that course which occasion and conscience demand; to be womanly always; to be  discouraged never; in a word, to be loyal under any and all circumstances to my Fraternity and her  highest teachings and to have her welfare ever at heart that she may be a symphony of high  purpose and helpfulness in which there is no discordant note.
