Why ND Loyal?
Through ND Loyal, alumni volunteers raise critical resources to enhance Notre Dame’s capacity to pursue its mission to be a powerful force for good. The ND Loyal volunteer community ensures this mission not only “happens, but that it happens in the best way possible—keeping Catholic character at our core and a spirit of service threaded through all of our efforts as we educate the next generation of leaders. Our three pillars of building community, inspiring action, and serving students animate our work as we make the Notre Dame mission a reality.
ND Loyal volunteers serve as stewards of the incredible invitation to participate in the mission of Notre Dame and the opportunity to make a deep and profound difference. As a community of alumni with diverse interests, backgrounds, and passions, we believe this invitation is inherently intended for all. In spreading this invitation, volunteers have helped increase the University’s overall alumni participation by more than 2,000 alumni donors year after year.
Our Mission in Action
"Notre Dame has made a difference for me, professionally and spiritually. My degree is the gift that keeps giving, so I enjoy giving back. I feel enriched by doing so. We can make a difference for students like generations before us have made. It's our turn."
