Annual United Way Campaign underway


United Way 2018

Last year, Notre Dame faculty and staff donated nearly $230,000 to the United Way, the most of any workplace in St. Joseph County. 

According to the United Way of St. Joseph County (UWSJC), despite an improving economy, 4 in 10 families in the county struggle to meet basic needs. And many families fall just above the federal government’s poverty line, disqualifying them for programs such as SNAP (supplemental nutrition assistance program) and child care vouchers.

Your contribution to the United Way supports efforts to reduce that number — from the agency’s own assistance programs to those offered by the Center for the Homeless, YWCA, Big Brothers Big Sisters of St. Joseph County and other community partners. A full list is available at

The University’s 2018 United Way campaign launched in October and concludes at the end of November.

Matching grant

Double the impact of your gift! A matching grant from Indiana Association of United Ways means that each new annual gift of $100 or more, or an existing annual gift increased by $100 or more, will be matched dollar-for-dollar. The association will match up to $15,000, meaning the University could potentially add $30,000 to our campaign.
