Omega Society

In July 2001, the mortgage on the Headquarters property stood at $732,000 and the annual property maintenance budget was only $25,000. Later that year, the Foundation board developed a Strategic Plan. The goals for the mortgage and property maintenance were to retire the mortgage and to increase the annual maintenance budget from $25,000 to $100,000 - both by 2006.

As you know, Omega means “the end” and, for this reason, the Fraternity does not use Omega in chapter designations. However, the Foundation has determined that Omega was appropriate as we sought to retire the mortgage on the Headquarters Shrine. Thus, the Omega Society was formed in 2001.

The purpose of the Society is to ensure that our Headquarters Shrine remains the “crown jewel” of Sigma Nu for generations to come. Initially, this has been accomplished in two ways. First, members of the Omega Society contributed $2,000 annually which was applied directly to the mortgage until it was retired in 2004. Secondly, since the mortgage was retired, members of the Omega Society have had a choice to give $1,000 each year for life or to continue giving $2,000 annually.  These contributions are being used for the maintenance, upkeep, and renovation of our beautiful and historic Shrine. Today, almost $75,000 of the funds budgeted for maintenance, upkeep, and renovation come from Omega member contributions.

Mr. Sigma Nu, Brother Dick Fletcher had this to say about our Headquarters. When explaining why our headquarters was moved from Indianapolis to Lexington in a 1957 Delta Article, Brother Fletcher wrote “Sigma Nu is going home…to give added emphasis to history, traditions and ideals; to provide greater operational effectiveness…to stimulate pride in our heritage and encourage pilgrimages to our birthplace.” Brothers, these words continue to ring true, even some 50 years after our moving back home to Lexington.  We hope that you can join us in helping keep this dream alive for generations to come!
