  • Gifts of Retirement Assets

    Donate part or all of your retirement assets, such as a gift from your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension, or other tax-deferred plan may be an excellent way to make a gift to Notre Dame.

  • Gifts of Securities

    Donating appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, can be one of the most advantageous ways of giving to Notre Dame.

  • Gifts of Insurance

    If you have a life insurance policy that has outlasted its original purpose, consider making a gift of your insurance policy. For example, you may have purchased a policy to provide to provide for minor children who are now financially independent adults.
