The Sorin Society Forever Fund is an opportunity for members of the giving society to continue their impact with financial resources that have direct impact on students 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 Sorin Society Forever Fund will provide critical resources for future generations of Notre Dame students, the same way annual gifts to the Sorin Society provide those resources for today's students, including:

  • Providing financial aid
  • Furthering Notre Dame's Catholic mission
  • Strengthening academics by expanding student research opportunities

These gifts ensure that the mission of the University of Notre Dame continues both today and forever.
