“This campaign is entirely for and about Notre Dame’s students. By investing in our students—by placing them at the center of everything we do and every plan we make—we enhance our ability to be a force for good in the world. Because, ultimately, that’s why we’re here: to create leaders to transform the world.”

Campaign Priorities


Growing endowment expands options for students.

Endowment gifts will help generate over $900,000 in additional funds each year to support the students who will be the barrier breakers of the future. To provide this ongoing support, we seek to grow the University’s endowment by $18.2 million.


Enhancing facilities and technology expands learning.

We are thoughtfully undertaking new projects aligned with our most recent strategic plan. Your support of this $15.5 million priority will allow us to strengthen science, technology, engineering, and math education; upgrade athletic facilities and technology infrastructure; and enhance the student commons.


Building institutional capacity expands our ability to do more.

You can help amplify the Notre Dame experience and continue our founding vision of inclusiveness and a powerful education that drives social change. We seek to raise $11.3 million for the annual fund and campaign support, engaging every member of the Notre Dame community as we live up to the legacy of our foundresses.
