“Our students have seen more rapid change in their lifetime than the world has seen since creation. They have seen a president shot, men walk on the moon, nations literally destroyed by war, and it is amazing that their human circuits have not burned up.”

Letter from the Committee

1971 Class Gift—Goal $71,000

In anticipation of our 50th Reunion, the Committee has established the Class of 1971 Scholarship. This scholarship will provide much-needed financial support for today’s Notre Dame students. Our goal is to raise $71,000 by May 2021!  

Gifts of all sizes are welcome. Pledges of $1000 or more may be paid over four years.  We hope that classmates will make multi-year commitments to the fund so that students will begin to receive significant support from the Class of 1971 Scholarship.

Please contact the Development Office at Notre Dame for more details at 203.937.3214 or kwielk@notredamehs.com for additional information.
