Founders Fund The Founders Fund recognizes individuals who make
donations at the $25,000 level. These gifts are payable over
a period of one to three years. A gift of this level provides
resources to operate the entire house for a month. It helps
ensure that no one will be turned away. The Founders
Fund is named for the early organizers who helped make
the vision of Omega House a reality.
Veterans Fund Since opening our doors, U.S. military veterans have
made up to approximately 30% of all residents. We are
honored to serve these residents. You can recognize a veteran,
a branch of service or a veterans group with your gift.
Naming Opportunities Omega House has naming opportunities available for
donations small and large. This is a unique way to forever
honor or remember a loved one. For gifts of $1000 an
etched glass panel commemorative wall has been created
that greets visitors as they enter the house.

benefit the house. Some events are planned and conducted
by Omega House staff, volunteers and board members.
Other events are planned and conducted by individuals
