Dear Friends –
It is an exciting time at Notre Dame Preparatory School! Our theme for this 2019-20 school year is “Faith is the Foundation.” While energy abounds on campus and we are witnessing breathtaking changes with the construction of our new Innovation Wing, we are mindful that we are building on a foundation that has stood the test of time -- a strong foundation of faith, a foundation of education in the SSND tradition, and a foundation grounded in Gospel values.

We are grateful for the many people in our community who invest in our mission. There are so many ways to give at NDP – through volunteer service, through participation in different organizations on campus, and through contributions to our Annual Fund, our Gala, restricted funds, and now our newly launched capital campaign. And this community gives generously!

We named our capital campaign Limitless: Redefining Possibilities, Unleashing Potential because we believe that our students truly do have unlimited potential. With your support, we provide them with values, knowledge, enriching experiences, and spiritual growth. This capacity-building Limitless campaign will equip us to provide new, even richer opportunities for our students well into the future.

NDP is building upon a firm foundation of values and traditions to prepare our students to excel as innovators in the 21st century and to do so with compassion, with kindness, and with a desire to create a more just world. We are grateful to all those who partner with us to live out our mission by teaching our students to be loving, just, and wise women who will one day go out to transform our world.
With appreciation,
Kristen Stamile Kinkopf
Executive Director of Institutional Advancement

Ways to Give to Notre Dame Prep

List of 6 frequently asked questions.

  • + Annual Fund

    The Annual Fund helps each student, and it is essential to the sustainability of our school. Our needs are diverse, and while the Annual Fund helps with the daily operation of the school, we rely on major and planned gifts to help us plan and build for the future. Coupled together, Annual Fund and major and planned gifts help the school thrive in all aspects and help with fiscal stability over time. Learn more here.
  • +  Limitless: Redefining Possibilities, Unleashing Potential 

    The Limitless: Redefining Possibilities, Unleashing Potential campaign is the largest in school history and has already secured unprecedented support from community members. Equally impressive is that 60% of campaign donors have provided their first gift to an NDP capital effort through Limitless. 

    NDP has surpassed its initial $8,000,000 goal thanks to the support of 200+ individuals and families and is working toward a vision of raising $10,000,000, which would fund the Innovation Wing construction and increase scholarships.

  • + Capital Improvements

    Capital improvements to campus through projects such as the building of a brand new, state-of-the-art Innovation Wing and adjustments and repairs to our existing structures remain necessary and critical part of our master plan. The new building will add resources to help prepare our girls for the changing workplace and careers in competitive fields such as Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. The addition of the new building will also give a variety of access to much-needed space for our students who are interested in areas such as Humanities. The entire student body will benefit from the opportunities in this innovative new space.
  • + Planned and Major Gifts

    To ensure NDP’s long-term ability to grow and thrive, we rely on major and planned gifts. If the Annual Fund can be compared to an individual’s checking account, major and planned giving can be compared to a savings account or investments. Together, these different kinds of philanthropy come together to provide for the school’s overall financial health.

    Planned gifts offer myriad ways for philanthropists to provide for NDP as part of their estate planning. Some gifts are made now and can provide tax and financial benefits to the donor through the transfer of assets like stock or an IRA. Other gifts invest in the future as part of an individual’s overall estate plan. With thoughtful planning, you can make a gift that makes a tremendous difference in the lives of the young women learning and growing at NDP, now and into the future.

  • + Scholarship and Endowment

    It is important for us to continue offering opportunities to young women to experience the gift of a Notre Dame Preparatory education. Endowed funds can be established with a minimum gift of $25,000. Such funds allow philanthropists to leave their legacy at NDP by creating a named fund to support a scholarship or other designated purpose in perpetuity. Click here for more information.

    Sponsoring an event provides a meaningful way to support the school and to let others know that you care about NDP!
