Membership with a mission

New St. Peter Chanel Society members and increased giving highlight successful SPCS Membership Week.

Last week, Notre Dame conducted its first St. Peter Chanel Society membership drive of the year. The SPCS is comprised of leadership donors making annual gifts of $1,000 or more to The Notre Dame Fund. Through their annual contributions, members provide the school with the resources necessary to fulfill the school's mission to form Christian people, upright citizens and academic scholars.

"Thank you to everyone who took part in our drive," said Atif Lodhi, director of The Notre Dame Fund. "Our goal was 20 new members, and while we fell a little short of our goal, we were encouraged by those who did join and by those who increased their annual Notre Dame Fund gift!"

     • Fifteen new St. Peter Chanel Society members
     • Six members who renewed their St. Peter Chanel Society membership
     • More than $29,000 raised during Membership Week

"We hope you consider joining the St. Peter Chanel Society before year's end," said Lodhi. "It makes an enormous impact on the daily life of a Notre Dame student.
