Giving Societies

Sorin Society

Members of the Sorin Society join in the vision of Notre Dame's founder, Father Sorin, by empowering students with the resources they need to become forces for good in the world.

Gifts from Sorin Society members primarily fund the University’s commitment to meet the full demonstrated financial aid need of every Notre Dame student--a commitment made by fewer than 60 universities across the country. Additionally, through their annual gifts, Sorin Society members give University leaders the flexibility to further the Catholic mission of the University, enhance student life and experiences, and fund other priorities and areas of need.
