The Rockne Athletics Forever Fund is an opportunity for members of the giving society to continue their impact on student athletes for generations to come.  Benefactors may designate gifts of any size through the terms of a will or living trust or through the remainder of a Charitable Remainder Trust. Gifts to the Forever Fund are endowed and invested in the Notre Dame Endowment.

Estate gifts that are designated to the Rockne Athletics Forever Fund will provide critical resources for future generations of Notre Dame student athletes, the same way annual gifts to the Rockne Athletics Fund provide resources to today's students, including:

  • Providing scholarships and support for all 26 varsity programs
  • Positioning student-athletes to achieve success in competition and in the classroom
  • Upholding Notre Dame's values of Excellence, Education, Faith, Community, and Tradition

These gifts ensure that Notre Dame student athletes are provided a top-level academic and athletic experience both today and forever.
