The 1851 Legacy Society has been named in honor of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur who founded Notre Dame High School San Jose in 1851. It recognizes and honors donors who have designated bequest commitments or life income gifts to Notre Dame and those who have established named endowment funds.

Leaving a legacy gift to Notre Dame as part of your planned giving will ensure a strong foundation for our mission of educating young women through the 21st Century and beyond. There are numerous planned giving options and we recommend that you talk to your legal and/or financial advisors.  Don’t forget to let us know that you have included Notre Dame in your planning – we want to acknowledge you as you wish and include you in our 1851 Legacy Society.
