Keep Calm and Support the Graduating Class Gift!
The graduating class gift has a long tradition here at Notre Dame. Whether you were here for a short time or many years, you will always remember Notre Dame of Maryland University. Supporting Notre Dame now will help other students experience the wonderful educational and leadership opportunities, caring community and personal attention that Notre Dame is known for.
Each student who makes a contribution will receive a special gift.
Now through the end of June*, show your support of your graduating class through a gift of $20.14; make a difference for your (soon-to-be ) alma mater and the lives of the students who will come after you.
You can even make your Graduating Class Gift in honor of the person who inspired you most - perhaps a favorite professor, a staff member or maybe a friend or family member. All honorees will receive a personalized note card expressing your appreciation of all they have done for you during your time here at Notre Dame.
Can't do $20.14? How about making a $10 donation through our Text-to-Give program! Simply text the word FEARLESS with your name and class year (so we know you are part of the graduating class) to 80888. It's that simple! And there will be no immediate out-of-pocket expense as your donation will simply be charged to your mobile phone bill the following month.
As a soon-to-be alum, know that any gift made to Notre Dame is greatly appreciated and provides support for numerous student resources such as financial aid, technology upgrades, campus improvements, and academic programs. Although we ask for $20.14 to represent your graduating class year, a gift of any amount is important and counts toward the participation rate. If you didn't know, a higher participation rate increases the value of your degree, and increases the school's rankings in publications like U.S. News World & Report. This increases Notre Dame's ability to receive important grants and funding that all help offset the cost of a Notre Dame education.
Your graduating class gift not only represents your appreciation of Notre Dame, but is a vote of confidence in our community. You can make your graduating class gift on the form below or call 410-532-3197 to make your donation over the phone. You may also leave your donation with Melissa Lees, Director of Student Life.
Thank you for your support of Notre Dame of Maryland University.
*All graduating class gifts made by May 21 will be included in the check presentation during Commencement week.
