The Cor Fund

The Cor Fund — Nourishing the Heart of UD

  [ cor: noun, Latin — the heart ]

UD’s annual fund, the Cor Fund, is the lifeblood of the University of Dallas. Annual unrestricted gifts to the Cor Fund provide a crucial bridge between tuition revenue and the actual costs to deliver a quality UD education, directly affecting students and our outstanding faculty.  Most importantly, a gift to the Cor Fund allows the University to respond to the most pressing financial concerns and provide the flexibility to seize unique and important opportunities that serve UD’s vital mission.

Simply put, your contribution will be used to do the most good.

Why give to the Cor Fund?

The Cor Fund supports our university’s greatest needs: competitive student scholarships, faculty research and enrichment, speakers providing intellectual engagement, and recreational activities to nourish the mind and body as well as the soul.

Maggie Chevey“ I love UD because of the excellence that it stands for in every area. But I am sold on UD because this excellence is actually achieved through the demands of the professors and the determination of the students. My dream of experiencing this unique community came true only with the help of financial aid. ”- Maggie Chavey | Class of 2021
