During this exciting time, we have the unique opportunity to earn a portion of a $1 Million! Make a $10 gift on Notre Dame Day (April 23 – 24), and receive 5 votes to cast. The total number of votes we receive decides our percentage of the $1 Million. You can also specify that your original donation can be directed and restricted to University Village and Cripe Street Student Family Housing. You just need to specify this when you make your contribution! Please vote for us!
We will use these funds to purchase supplies that support student families. For example, last year's funds helped support our 'Welcome Kit' initiative that provides basic food items and household supplies for new residents upon arrival while they set up their household. This is an essential service that welcomes and helps our new families, many of whom have traveled for more than a day to arrive at Notre Dame and the Village. Last year's funds helped us purchase a new portable grill for the annual Village concession stand, our primary fundraiser of the year, which is a great community building event and funds a lot of our community activities. This year we hope to invest in items like playground equipment, fitness equipment, community center furniture, etc. that will benefit our current residents and can continue to serve student families at the new student family housing/family resource center when our current location closes in in June 2018. This is a great opportunity to let everyone know how important the University Village at Notre Dame is and has been to so many families throughout its 50 year history. Student families are an integral part of Notre Dame’s past, present and future!
