Annual Giving

Annual Giving

Every gift really does matter.

A little goes a long way at Notre Dame. When you make a gift to the University, you join thousands of alumni, parents, friends, students, faculty, and staff who support the Notre Dame Annual Fund each year. All of those gifts—most under $50—add up in a big way.

So even if you can part with only a few dollars, you can still do your part for a better Notre Dame. And since you can designate your contribution for financial aid, your dorm, any academic department or college, student club, varsity or club sport, or other officially recognized area of the University, you can support what matters most to you.

Every gift matters. Make yours today.

Annual Giving by the Numbers
  • Last year, nearly 11,000 donors made gifts of less than $50.
  • Endowment earnings cover only about 20% of the University’s yearly operating expenses. Notre Dame depends on annual gifts—like yours—to pick up where the endowment leaves off.
