There’s a Spirit About This Place
Our girls are the living embodiment of NDP’s spirit as they flourish in academic excellence, spiritual growth and the practice of social justice. Philanthropy strengthens and sustains our close-knit sisterhood. Your gift is an investment in our girls as they learn in the classroom, on the playing field, in an arts studio, and through social service. Because of you, we are able to teach our girls to be loving, just, and wise—to embody the spirit of the School Sisters of Notre Dame.
Annual Fund: Providing for Today’s Needs
The annual fund provides 8% of NDP’s annual operating budget, bridging the gap between tuition and actual costs. That’s 8% of every classroom, athletic team, and arts production; 8% of every scholarship; 8% of every student club, field trip and enrichment activity; 8% of every service and justice project; 8% of every faculty salary and professional development grant; and 8% of every maintenance and groundskeeping expense. Every family benefits, and every gift matters!
Endowment: Strengthening Our Foundation
Notre Dame Preparatory School was founded in 1873 based on the values of the School Sisters of Notre Dame. While our approach to education remains contemporary, we remain firmly rooted these values. Gifts to our endowment ensure that we will continue to educate young women in this tradition for generations to come. In establishing an endowment, you ensure that your family’s legacy will coexist with that of the School Sisters of Notre Dame in perpetuity.
Legacy Giving: Planning for Our Future
Including Notre Dame Prep in your estate plan is one of the most powerful statements you can make about your faith in our work. Your estate plan is a reflection of what you value most. NDP is honored that you would consider making our mission part of your own legacy.
