About us

The first chapter of Omega Nu was founded in 1897 in San Jose, California.  Today Omega Nu has evolved into an association of 12 California Chapters, each of which serves its own community through charity and service. The Chico (Beta) Chapter of Omega Nu was established in 1920 and currently has 32 active members and 67 active excused members.

The Beta Chapter of Omega Nu focuses its charitable contributions on worthwhile needs in the greater Chico area. The Beta Chapter of Omega Nu remains a completely volunteer group with no paid staff and no office.

Each year, Omega Nu, Beta Chapter holds two major fund raisers. In our 2017-2018 fiscal year, the Beta Chapter of Omega Nu distributed $51,935.67.

Omega Nu charity work is possible with the continued support of our amazing community.  Individuals and businesses purchase tickets, donate items, purchase advertisements, and sponsor tables at our events to show their support. We sincerely appreciate these donations; the needs in our community are ongoing and continue to increase. 

Omega Nu is proud of our philanthropic tradition and we look forward to continuing our charitable work with the help of so many generous supporters in our community. Thank you!
