The University of Notre Dame is strengthened by your generosity, and your gift makes a difference—each and every day. Working together to support Notre Dame’s unique mission, our alumni, students, faculty, parents, staff, and friends create opportunities that advance programs enabling Catholic faith and character to inform and enlighten our scholars and our students and, through them, the world. The education of our students at a very high level would be impossible without gifts from you. When it comes to making a long-term impact on Notre Dame, there are many giving options to choose from besides simply writing a check. So how do you know which method of support is right for you? To find a charitable gift that best meets your family’s needs and supports Notre Dame for years to come, you need a plan—and we’re here to help!

Notre Dame’s Gift Planning team of professionals can help you with everything from simple bequests to gifts of retirement-plan assets, real estate, appreciated securities, and the complete range of life-income gifts, including charitable remainder trusts and gift annuities. With smart planning, we will work with you to determine What to Give and Ways to help take care of yourself and your loved ones by helping you plan for and achieve your own personal financial, tax and estate planning, retirement income, or philanthropic goals. Whether your gift is great or small, through gift planning, your thoughtfulness, generosity, and commitment might take a form far more meaningful than you ever thought possible and will create your Notre Dame legacy.
