Why give to the Notre Dame Folk Choir?

The Folk Choir has enriched the worship experience for countless congregations through its ministry at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart. Thanks to the generosity of our benefactors, the Folk Choir established an endowment fund to ensure the Choir’s future success. We welcome contributions that support our mission of providing sacred music for the University community and beyond.

What can I do with my gift?
