Corby Young Alumni of the Sorin Society

Join over 800 recent alumni in boldly advancing areas of greatest need at Notre Dame.


Created in 2011, Corby Young Alumni is the first step in a lifetime of annual support for the University as part of Notre Dame's largest recognition community, the Sorin Society.

Who are Corby Young Alumni of the Sorin Society? What do they support?

Corby Young Alumni members provide University leaders with the flexibility to meet any unforeseen financial obligations, and allow the university to fulfill critical needs in areas like financial aid, student life, and academic excellence. Many of these annual needs fall outside of tuition or endowment return spending.

Corby members join an exclusive group of just over 800 like-minded leaders (among 20,000+ alumni of the last ten years) who want to make an exceptional difference in the future of of the University. 

For more information on how your Corby contributions make a difference right now for meaningful areas of need at Notre Dame, please take a look at our 2015 Sorin Impact Report.

The Sorin Society and its Corby Young Alumni membership serve a very specific fundraising purpose at Notre Dame - to provide annual expendable funds to areas that aren't necessarily covered by their own endowments or other fundraising vehicles.  For this reason, gifts made to specific areas at Notre Dame (such as gifts to a residence hall or student club) are not eligible for Corby membership.
