Rockne Heritage Fund
News headlines call attention to Notre Dame’s twenty-seven team national championships, eight-straight number one finishes atop the NCAA Graduation Success Rate rankings, and the countless daily achievements of our athletes. But behind the headlines are the individual stories of the 700 student-athletes for whom you make the dream of wearing blue and gold a reality.
Here are the stories of three student-athletes who have not only benefited from Rockne Heritage Fund gifts, but exemplify the impact return on our benefactors investments:
All Green level members and above will receive a football ticket lottery application - special contributors status.
Gifts must be complete by Dec. 31 in order to qualify for the upcoming season. Applicants will be able to apply for two to six tickets per game, depending on game availability and their donor level. In recent years Director's Circle members have had an over 90% success rate for home game tickets requested through the lottery.
