Every Penny Helps

Sycamore Trust relies on the generosity of its supporters to pursue an authentic Catholic renewal at Notre Dame. Our fight is against the forces of secularization which will forever press upon those leading the University. To win that fight we must continue to widen our audience and increase our influence and build a stable funding structure for the future. The greater the resources available, the better we are able to serve these ends. Thank you for considering a tax-deductible contribution to support our work.

Gifting Securities

Securities that are donated to Sycamore Trust are deductible on your federal income tax at the fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income. You do not have to recognize the appreciation as capital gain.
