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 percent of NDP’s annual operating budget, bridging the gap between tuition and actual costs. That’s 8 percent of every classroom, athletic team, and arts production; 8 percent of every scholarship; 8 percent of every student club, field trip and enrichment activity; 8 percent of every service and justice project; 8 percent of every faculty salary and professional development grant; and 8 percent of every maintenance and grounds keeping expense. Every family benefits, and every gift matters!
Endowment: Strengthening Our Foundation
The enduring values of Notre Dame Prep stretch back to its founding in 1873, when we were established based on the values of the School Sisters of Notre Dame. While our approach to education remains contemporary, we remain firmly rooted in this tradition. Gifts to endowment ensure the continuation of these values 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 plans is one of the most powerful statements you can make about your faith in our work. Estate planning is a reflection of the values you have honed over a lifetime. NDP is honored that you would consider making our mission part of your own legacy.
