For all eligible graduates of Notre Dame: YES. If received by December 31, gifts to ACE can qualify you for the ticket lottery if they meet the minimum contribution amount. For more information about eligibility requirements, visit the Football Ticket Policy.
You can make a gift at anytime, but to ensure tax credit and football ticket lottery eligibility for 2014, please remember to make your gift online by December 31, 2013. Online gifts completed no later than midnight in your time zone on December 31, 2013, will qualify. To make your gift online, go to http://supporting.nd.edu/ace.
Note: IRS guidelines require online credit card transactions be completed by 11:59 p.m. December 31, 2013 (based on the time zone in which the gift is made) in order for those gifts to count toward 2013 tax deductibility.
The Alliance for Catholic Education is just one of many departments within the University of Notre Dame. Like those units, we use the University's giving platform. You can ensure your gift will be received by ACE by using our designated link: http://supporting.nd.edu/ace. You can also make the request in the comment section of submission form.
A little goes a long way in Catholic schools. When you make a gift to ACE, you join hundreds of alumni, parents, friends, students, faculty, and staff who support the the Notre Dame ACE Annual Appeal each year. All of those gifts—even those under $50—add up in a big way.
If you have any questions concerning your support of the ACE program and the University of Notre Dame, please contact Packy Lyden at the Alliance for Catholic Education.
