A Bit 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 11 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 22 active members and 61 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 fundraisers. In our 2021-2022 fiscal year, the Beta Chapter of Omega Nu distributed over $36,000.00.

Worthy organizations that were the recipients of our charitable giving this past year include:

Cast Hope, Durham Doggie Posse, Chico Junior High,

Jesus Center, Neal Dow Elementary School PTA, Notre Dame School Library,

Point of Contact, Special Olympics of Butte County, True North Housing

Chico HS Safe & Sober Grad Night

Durham HS Safe & Sober Grad Night

Paradise HS Safe & Sober Grad Night

PV HS Safe & Sober Grad Night

Plus countless non-monetary donations in service and tangible goods for Catholic Ladies Relief Society #3 Food Distribution Center, Butte County Community School, CASA, and Youth and Family Programs


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!
