Current partial list of Center needs:

  • Support for the Father Don McNeill Endowment Fund for Excellence in Service Learning honoring Center founder Father Don McNeill. This fund will assist, among other initiatives, in supporting seminars and pilot projects so often identified with Father Don's lifetime commitment "for a more just and humane world."
  • Support for the annual operations of the Center.
  • Alternative break seminar support for student scholarships and transportation.
  • Community-based research and course development grants.
  • Justice issues speaker support for prominent speaker travel and honoraria.

If you would like to assist with any of these needs, please contact Rev. Paul Kollman, C.S.C., or Jim Paladino at the Center for Social Concerns, or the Notre Dame Development Office at the numbers listed below.
