The Beta Chapter of Omega Nu was founded on October 20, 1920 in Chico, California with five charter members. It was the first sorority not affiliated with the local college and is known as a sisterhood of friends. The current membership consists of a dynamic mix of women with various careers, interests and ages. In 2000 we created a Foundation to facilitate our charitable projects and to start a general endowment fund for high school scholarships for local young women.
The main purpose of Beta Chapter is the betterment of our local community focusing primarily on supplementing the needs of women and children. Donations are made to a variety of community groups, schools, and individuals through the efforts or our membership and their contribution of energy, time and imagination to conduct two major fundraisers each year. All proceeds stay in the greater Chico area.
