Dear Friends,
Our theme for the 2021-22 school year is With Grateful Hearts, and as we embark upon a new school year here on Hampton Lane, we do so with a spirit of profound gratitude – and hope. We are grateful --  
  • For the extraordinary generosity and support that provides the resources we rely on to keep our school going, especially during challenging times;
  • For the health and safety of our community.
  • For our teachers and staff who give so much of themselves each day;
  • For our students, who give our work meaning and who inspire us every day as they embrace their work with such joyful enthusiasm and dedicate themselves through acts of justice and service to improving the lives of those around them;
  • For our alumnae, who provide examples to our girls of how to go out and transform the world; and
  • For our families, who entrust their daughters to our care.
Each member of our Advancement team is grateful to have the opportunity to partner with all of you as we work, together, to realize our mission. May we all continue to walk through this new school year with gratitude – for our many blessings and for each other.
With appreciation,
Kristen Stamile Kinkopf
Executive Director of Institutional Advancement

Ways to Give to Notre Dame Prep

List of 5 frequently asked questions.

  • + The Fund for Notre Dame Prep

    The Fund for Notre Dame Prep helps each student, and it is essential to the sustainability of our school. Our needs are diverse, and while The Fund for Notre Dame Prep 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, The Fund for Notre Dame Prep and major and planned gifts help the school thrive in all aspects and help with fiscal stability over time. Learn more here.
  • + 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. Our Innovation Wing adds 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 provides 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 Fund for Notre Dame Prep 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.
