Rockne Athletics Fund Impact

Rockne Athletics Fund members make annual gifts to provide Notre Dame student-athletes with the necessary resources to compete and succeed in every field. Being a Notre Dame student-athlete is a choice, where being challenged daily is the expectation. Each year, Rockne Athletics Fund members help shape Notre Dame’s distinct student-athlete experience by providing scholarships, health and wellness resources, immersive learning and study abroad opportunities, and facilities that inspire the competitive spirit of the Fighting Irish. Rockne members provided over $10 million in student-athlete financial aid and over $1.1 million in essential travel expenses. In total, the Rockne Athletics Fund raised $18.6 for Notre Dame student-athletes in the fiscal year 2023.
