Knights of ColumbusFor the Knights, Kevin Angell, Deputy Grand Knight, says in part:
Because we donate 100% of what we raise through our steak sales (we raised and donated $100,000 this year) and the university does not fund us, we rely on donations to supplement our endowment and dues to operate the council. Running our 1920’s era building is expensive, and we seek to make sure that we can keep costs down for members so that financial need is not a constraint to participation. This year, we are fundraising for various building improvements (lighting, furniture, kitchen equipment) since our building has not been significantly updated since the late 1960s as well as for apparel to help us be a more visible presence on campus.
Students for a Child-Oriented SocietyFor SCOP, its president, Shaun Evans, says in part:
Last semester, we sponsored White Ribbon Against Pornography Week. This semester, we brought two speakers to campus: Dan Mattson addressed the topic Same Sex Attraction and Catholicism with compassion and fidelity to the Church’s teaching, and Prof. Mark Regnerus addressed the topic of Cheap Sex: The Economics of Modern Love, discussing the effects brought about in the dating pool by pornography, contraception, and online dating. Donations will help us to continue to bring high quality speakers to campus.
Support Catholic Identity on CampusThis is a once-a-year opportunity to support these dedicated students with contributions that, even if modest, have multiplier effects. We earnestly urge you to take a few minutes and pitch in. Shaun Evans has provided donation information about other student organizations, all of which are worthy of your consideration. Sycamore Trust has contributed to each of them in the past and will continue to do so. (We should note that The Irish Rover is not listed because it is not an official Notre Dame club. You can, of course, make a tax-free donation anyway here.) You can donate to the Knights and SCOP as well as to the others and learn more about them by clicking on the links below:
