As donors who give $1,000 or more to The Notre Dame Fund in a single fiscal year, Meletia Society members form the foundation for all philanthropy at Notre Dame.
The Mary Meletia Society is made up of Notre Dame’s most generous benefactors. This influential group is comprised of approximately 200 graduates, Trustees, parents, friends, faculty and staff.
Joining the Mary Meletia Society
Meletia Society membership is based on your cumulative current-needs giving in a single fiscal year totaling $1,000 or greater from July 1 through June 30. Many members choose to make a Meletia Society pledge, and complete payments throughout the fiscal year—an excellent option for donors that would like to maximize their ability to support Notre Dame. Don’t forget, matching gifts are counted toward your annual gift total.
Rachael Mann, annual giving coordinator, can provide information on the many ways in which you can leverage your giving to support at the Meletia Society level. Please contact her at 410-532-3197 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
