Charitable Contributions

Donations Made By the University

The University is committed to contributing to the quality of life in the South Bend community in ways that further Notre Dame's values and academic mission.  This commitment is demonstrated through volunteerism on the part of administrators, faculty, staff, and students and through the financial support and assistance provided to community and service organizations.

In an effort to provide this financial support and assistance, all charitable contribution requests made on behalf of the University must be approved by the appropriate budget unit director and must be submitted to the Office of the Exectuve Vice President for further review and approval.

Note that this policy does not apply to donations made to political organizations.  Not-for-profit institutions organized under Section 501c(3) of the Internal Revenue Code-like the University of Notre Dame-are prohibited from making political donations.
