Support the Press

The University of Notre Dame Press believes in the power of books to change the world by advancing knowledge and impacting lives. When you support Notre Dame Press, you help connect the research, insights, and expertise of university faculty and independent scholars with the world, while expanding the reach, impact, and reputation of the University of Notre Dame. Your support encourages and sustains intellectual innovation and fosters the next generation of scholars, thinkers, and readers.

You can learn more about Notre Dame Press’s impact by reviewing our annual year at a glance. Passion, faith, and truth matter now more than ever. With your help, our books and authors will continue to be a powerful force for good in the world.

You can also support specific aspects of our mission by writing a specific fund name in the field labelled “Add a comment with your gift.” All funds are administered at the discretion of the Director to ensure the continuing critical and commercial success of the Press. The University of Notre Dame Press currently receives support from the following funds:

The Giles Family Fund supports the work and mission of the University of Notre Dame Press to publish books that engage the most enduring questions of our time. Each year the endowment helps underwrite the publication and promotion of books that spark intellectual exploration and expand the reach and impact of the University. Gifts to the Giles Family Fund support the Press in enhancing the reach of books that may require significant upfront investment for production or promotion but have the potential to provide substantial revenue after publication. Donations to the Giles Family Fund are a gift that keeps giving back to the Press.

The First-time Author Fund helps underwrite the publication of a first book by a promising scholar each year. First-time academic authors typically lack the funding and support provided to tenured faculty and do not have an established audience, making outreach and advertising more difficult. Gifts to the First-Time Author Fund promote fresh and exciting ideas in the academic community and help propel new scholars forward in their career.
