Omicron Delta Kappa’s 6th annual National Day of Giving was held on Thursday, May 6, 2021. Our goal was to acquire 75 new donors and raise more than $20,000, and our focus this year was three-fold. To read more about each fund, please scroll down.

The Key Fund. The fund’s name is derived from the symbolism of the O∆K Key, which was designed in 1915. The shape of the key represents the circle, which symbolizes our Society’s all-around and inclusive nature. The Key Fund was established to support scholarships and the gift of membership for students from underrepresented and historically marginalized racial and ethnic populations.
The Opportunity Fund. Do you want to make sure that deserving college students never have to decline their invitation to join Omicron Delta Kappa as a result of cost? Give to the O∆K Opportunity (Gift of Membership) Fund! Your gift will support the underwriting of a portion of the national initiation fee for collegiate members who are Pell-eligible or who have other significant financial constraints. Through the provision of membership in O∆K, these collegiate members will have access to other programs including scholarships, leadership development programs, and career resources.
The Annual Fund. When you give an unrestricted gift to O∆K, you are supporting the primary needs of the organization. These typically include circle support, career resources, and member communications. Unless donors indicate that a gift is restricted, all gifts to O∆K are considered unrestricted.
