In the interest of never having a deserving college student decline his or her invitation to join Omicron Delta Kappa because of cost, the Gift of Membership Program supports 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. Each circle is allowed to seek one gift each year. Additional information about the Gift of Membership Program is below. The Key Fund also supports the gift of membership from historically underrepresented and marginalized ethnic populations.
