Since 2012, 22,959 donors of all ages from 50 states and around the globe have shown we believe that Chi Omega Sisterhood Never Stops, raising $27,236,258 to educate Chi Omega women and preserve our Sisterhood. This December, the Chi Omega Foundation concluded our historic Sisterhood Never Stops Campaign, the largest and most comprehensive Chi Omega fundraising campaign to date and the largest in the history of the entire women’s fraternal community.
The Chi Omega Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) organization accepting tax-deductible donations created to support the mission of our Fraternity. We set out to raise $20 million for the educational resources and outstanding programming for all our members; we could never have imagined the generous support that has made this record-setting success possible.
From $5 Owl Tree gifts to the largest gift of $3 million from Nancy Walton Laurie, Psi/Arkansas, and all those between have combined to transform women’s lives. Gifts have built and renovated chapter houses, funded scholarships, and supported Annual Fund and underwriting goals, including those to endow Risk Management Programs, Executive Headquarters Preservation, further support of The Nancy Walton Laurie Leadership Institute of Chi Omega, and so much more. Additionally, documented estate gifts allowed alumnae and their families to share their future thoughtful commitments.
The true magnitude of these gifts are not in the tally, but in the number of women who benefit; women choosing more wisely, leading with greater courage, and reaching toward grander horizons because of your generosity. 28,000 collegiate members and countless alumnae each year through many programs.
Just as Sisterhood Never Stops and you helped achieve record campaign investment for Chi Omega, the work of the Foundation continues. As we build on the energy of the last four years, ambitious goals remain for growing the Annual Fund and building our endowment.
