Nationally, Chi Omega supports the Make-A-Wish Foundation, a philanthropy that all Chi Omega chapters share. The Make-A-Wish foundation grants the wishes of children with life threatening medical conditions, allowing magic to happen in the lives of these children and their families. Through the experiences granted by Make-A-Wish, our aim is to make a difference and enhance the lives of children and families as they fight these illnesses together.

Chi Omega’s greatest source of fundraising is through our annual  “Wings for Wishes” bracket-style wing eating competition in the Spring and our annual "Swishes for Wishes" basketball tournament in the Fall. Wish Week is another event where we hold many fundraising activities that include, Pie-O a Chi-O, grilled cheese stands, silent auctions, percentage nights, t-shirt sales, and many others. In-chapter fundraisers, such as Chi O Yard Sale, is one of the many other ways we raise money for Make-A-Wish. 

Whether helping our national philanthropy (Make-A-Wish Foundation), the Clemson University community, or the local community, Chi Omegas make a difference. Each year, we commit to both fundraising and volunteering to help make a difference in the lives of others. In addition to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Chi Omegas at Clemson participate in other University events such as Dance Marathon, Clemson LIFE, Habitat for Humanity, and many more. 


Philanthropy Chair, Jesse Simmons

Hey! My name is Jesse Simmons and I am so excited to be Psi Kappa’s Philanthropy Chair this year! As Chi Omegas we pride ourselves in working hard to do good for others. We work as a team to serve people both on campus and all around the Clemson community. Make A Wish is such a special organization that has impacted the lives of many, including some members of our chapter. This position has opened my eyes to how large of a difference we as Chi Omegas do make. With this position, I will do my absolute best to make sure that every member of this chapter is giving it their all to give back to this amazing and inspiring organization. Knowing that our work is helping children get their wish granted is a feeling that cannot be forgotten.

A LETTER FROM OUR community service CHAIR

Hi, I'm Arianna!

One of Chi Omega's six purposes is service to others. Giving back to our community is essential because it allows us to address local needs and support vulnerable populations. Service will enable our members to demonstrate empathy and compassion, both important emotions as we evolve into community leaders.

As Director of Community Service, I provide community service opportunities for our members. This position is great because I can choose which organizations our chapter works closely with throughout the Clemson/Pickens County area. This year, I aim to provide more opportunities for our members to volunteer their time instead of requiring monetary donations.

Service has always been one of the guiding principles in my life. My day is complete when I've helped others and spread love through service and acts of kindness. Although I am helping others by volunteering my time, I benefit because of the increased happiness and positive impact on my life. I am so grateful for the opportunity to share this mentality and create opportunities that make our members excited to serve. 

I look forward to a great year where we can strengthen relationships with our community and each other. 

Community Service Chair, Arianna Gregory
