Sycamore Trust relies on the generosity of its supporters to pursue its purpose of an authentic Catholic renewal at Notre Dame. Our fight is against the forces of secularization that will press ceaselessly on the University. And to win that fight we must continue to widen our audience and influence and maintain a stable funding structure for the future. The greater the resources available, the better we are able to serve these ends. Thank you for considering a tax-deductible contribtion to support out work.

Like the ancient Sycamore tree standing watch over the Grotto, Sycamore Trust, with its broad base of supporters within the Notre Dame Family, seeks to protect the school’s formative heritage — its Catholic identity and its sustaining relationship to the Church.

Project Sycamore plays an enormously important role in promoting the Catholic character and mission of Notre Dame. It provides a sustained and deeply thoughtful monitoring of developments. It works to influence Notre Dame for the good and it is greatly needed at this time.
Rev. Wilson D. (Bill) Miscamble, C.S.C.
Sycamore Trust is a model of calm and reasonable yet unrelenting friendly questioning of recent events on the South Bend Campus

There will be no sweeping under the rug of actions of the University at variance with mission and its catholicity…because of the efforts of Sycamore Trust.
Walter Nicgorski
Professor Emeritus
Program of Liberal Studies
Catholic universities … are privileged places in which the Church can mobilize her resources to hand on the faith … and foster the intellectual revolution that Pope John Paul II envisaged in Fides et Ratio.
Cardinal Avery Dulles, S.J.
