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.

MACO has volunteered at Stories of Light, the Make-A-Wish fundraiser held annually at the Mall of America.

Most recently, members of MACO volunteered at Make-A-Wish's fundraising event, Delicious Wishes.
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.
Sincere Learning and Creditable Scholarship means that we care about our intellectual development.  We embrace the spirit and excitement of learning throughout our lives and encourage others to better themselves.
Community Service means that we want to make a difference on our campuses and in our communities.  We know that giving back to others unselfishly makes the world a better place and makes us better people.   Serving and giving helps to connect us.

Minnesota Alums have, for the last several years, chosen to sponsor a family through the Family Friends Holiday Program.  This program is run as a joint project between Catholic Charities and Lutheran Social Services and builds on its success from year to year due to the generosity of the people in Minnesota.  In Dec 2007, MACO sponsored a single father who is raising 2 teenage daughters!

Our newest philanthropy is the Jeremiah Program which assists low-income mothers and their children to help themselves complete their education and achieve economic self-sufficiency through empowerment skills, access to affordable housing, child development services, health care, support services and meaningful employment.  The Jeremiah Program mothers and children develop positive self-esteem and clarify their values on which to build a successful life.  MACO volunteers at "Cooks for Kids" and sponsors a school supply drive at the end of the summer.

We'd love for you to join us!

For most of the 20th century, the Minnesota Alumnae of Chi Omega had a focus:  the Pi Beta Chapter at the University of MN.  They ran the Corporation Board, acted as Advisors, attended formals and ran Eleusinia.

Since 1989 when the Pi Beta chapter closed, the focus of the alumnae became about strengthening local sisterhood and giving back to the community.  We plan a variety of activities and our membership is varied in age...from the new graduate to the 50+ year member.

And now we're excited to announce that the Pi Beta chapter is returning to the University of Minnesota for Fall 2013!  Details about the recolonization will be coming soon...stay tuned!
