What are the Notre Dame Club of Atlanta boundaries?
The list of zip codes included within our Club boundaries can be found here. These boundaries are set by the Notre Dame Alumni Association.
I’m not getting the Notre Dame Club of Atlanta e-newsletters. How can I sign up?
The Notre Dame Club of Atlanta utilizes the university mail system to send out newsletters. If you are not receiving e-newsletters, make sure you've signed up for our newsletter on our homepage or membership registration page or at the university membership site. If you want to make sure you are receiving a newsletter from a group such as Young Alumni, Senior Alumni, WomenConnect, please register at nd.edu
If I receive Club mailings, does that mean that my child is within the boundaries for scholarship consideration?
No. The Notre Dame Club of Atlanta will periodically send mailings to our base of alumni and friends in the Atlanta area. Our “base” includes a list of alumni/parents/friends within the Notre Dame Alumni Association’s Atlanta parameters. We supplement this list with members who have signed up with the Club but perhaps fall outside of the Alumni Association’s parameters. Therefore, it is possible to receive Notre Dame Club of Atlanta mailings but not be eligible for Notre Dame Club of Atlanta Scholarship consideration. Please keep in mind that the University of Notre Dame Office of Financial Aid determines the zip code parameters of the Atlanta Club. (Click here: NDATL Zip Codes to see a listing of zip codes considered part of the Atlanta Club.)
Can I make a tax-deductible donation to help fund the Atlanta Club Scholarships AND get credit for having made my annual Football Lottery donation?
Yes! Here is a LINK to donate.
Also, many companies will match donations to us. To find out if your company does this, please contact your HR department.
If I make a donation to the Atlanta Club’s scholarship activities in memory of an ND alumni, or otherwise intended for direct support of the Scholarship Foundation, will I get a charitable donation receipt for my income tax purposes?
Yes, the Scholarship Foundation is an IRS 501(c)(3) organization and sends out appropriate documentation for any donations it receives either directly or through the Club office.
If I am a member of the Notre Dame Club of Atlanta, and if my son/daughter is admitted to Notre Dame as a high school senior is he/she eligible for one of the Club’s scholarships?
No. Although all admitted students who apply to ND as high school seniors are eligible for one local Notre Dame Club scholarship, the decision about for WHICH Notre Dame Club’s scholarship a particular student is eligible is determined by the University’s Office of Student Financial Services, not by the individual Club. An admitted high school senior can call the Office of Student Financial Services to determine for which Club’s scholarship he or she is eligible and therefore he/she should apply.
If I am a member of the Notre Dame Club of Atlanta, and if my son/daughter transfers to Notre Dame later in his/her undergraduate career, is he/she eligible for one of the Club’s scholarships?
Unfortunately, no. The Notre Dame Club of Atlanta offers undergraduate scholarships to members of each entering undergraduate class once, during the spring prior to matriculation as freshmen. Those scholarships are then renewable during a student’s undergraduate degree program, so long as the Office of Student Financial Services verifies need and academic eligibility. The Notre Dame Club of Atlanta scholarship foundation does not award scholarship funds for the first time to upperclassmen or students who transfer to Notre Dame after the Atlanta Club scholarships for that class have been awarded. However, an enrolled student or transfer student is encouraged to contact the Office of Student Financial Services for possible assistance, if his/her financial aid needs change from the “need” reflected in the most recently-filed Federal Financial Aid/Notre Dame financial aid forms.
