Q: If I donate to the Rockne Athletics Fund, does the Rugby Club receive a portion?
No. The Rockne Athletics Fund impacts only intercollegiate athletics programs, and initiatives, not club sports.
Q: Where does my donation go and what does it provide?
The Rugby Program is not an intercollegiate varsity team, and is entirely self-funded through student dues, fundraiser, as well as generous gifts and contributions from the Irish Rugby Alumni, Family and Friends. All donations made to the club are applied to the cost of annual operation including but not limited to staff & medical coverage, equipment & supplies, home matches & tournaments and competition travel.
Q: Can I donate by check?
Yes, you may send a check to the Rugby Offices at:
