Giving Societies

Notre Dame's Giving Societies uniquely recognize members of the Notre Dame family who generously advance the University's mission through annual gifts.

Notre Dame's seven giving societies distinctly focus on priorities that make the Notre Dame experience not only great but exceptional.

These priorities include providing financial aid for undergraduate and graduate students in need, enhancing the Notre Dame student experience, and funding visionary opportunities and priorities. Giving Society members join Notre Dame in being a force for good in a world deeply in need.
