The Margaret Hyde Heritage Society


An Enduring Legacy Through Estate Planning

Many individuals who have had a lifelong relationship with Chi Omega and have seen our Sisterhood shape their lives have chosen to recognize and celebrate their relationship with the Fraternity in the form of a gift to the Foundation within their estate plans. Such a gift is a simultaneous testament to the Fraternity’s past and a cornerstone for the future.

Here are a few ways in which planned gifts may become Chi Omega legacies:

  • Gifts of cash
  • Appreciated property or securities
  • Life insurance gifts
  • Planned or deferred gifts
  • Will bequest

With your estate gift commitment, we invite you to become a member of The Margaret Hyde Heritage Society, appropriately named for the first President of our Foundation. Members are recognized in national publications and invited to special events that bring together Chi Omega contributors. As with any donation to Chi Omega, the choice to remain anonymous is yours.

If you would be interested in such a gift, click here for assistance with guidelines for estate gift planning, including suggested language, Foundation tax information, options for making planned gifts, the importance of documenting gifts, and information about Margaret Hyde and the Margaret Hyde Heritage Society.
