The Make-A-Wish Foundation is Chi Omega Fraternity's National Philanthropy. Since the start of their alliance, Chi Omegas have made a difference in many children's lives through volunteering time, talents, and dollars. In the fall of 2019, Pi Zeta alone raised over $10,000 through the annual fall philanthropy golf outing called "Wish Upon a Par". From the money raised, they were able to fully grant their wish kid, Izabella, a trip to meet Jim Parsons from the Big Bang Theory. In the spring Chi Omega host a "wish week" event where other WMU greek life chapters go head to head to raise money for the MAW Foundation. Chi Omega is humbled by the impact that Make-A-Wish has on so many families and feel blessed to serve and be a part of this wonderful organization!
