Planned gifts have had an immense effect on the history and development of Notre Dame, and their potential impact on the University's future is simply immeasurable. The single largest scholarship on campus was funded with a bequest, and buildings such as the Eck Hall of Law, the Guglielmino Athletics Complex, and the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center all resulted from the considerate planning of Notre Dame benefactors.
Each year, the University relies on planned gifts to meet current funding needs, establish new programs, strengthen existing ones, and supplement financial aid. Planned gifts are in fact an essential component to moving the University’s bold priorities forward into the future. All gifts of any size are deeply appreciated and have the opportunity to create a legacy that will last forever and influence generations of students.
Thank you for considering a planned gift to the University of Notre Dame.
