Mission Advancement

Thank you for your interest in supporting Notre Dame Academy. Through the leadership of the Congregation of Notre Dame and our Board of Trustees, the Office of Mission Advancement coordinates fundraising at NDA through a variety of events, campaigns, and programs. The Annual Fund is our primary fundraising focus each year.  Gifts to the Annual Fund are unrestricted and help us maintain and improve educational programs, professional development for our faculty and staff, scholarship & financial aid, and facilities enhancement. We host several fundraising events each year, including our annual Giving Day which is a virtual event where all members of our community come together to support Notre Dame and our students by reaching a fundraising goal in a 24-hour period and unlocking some incredible results.  The President’s Cup Golf & Tennis Tournament is a time-honored tradition of fun, followed by a dinner where we honor some very special members of our NDA family each year.  Reunions is a special event for our alumnae to celebrate some milestones as classmates and truly embraces the spirit of sisterhood found at Notre Dame Academy.

This year marks a very special moment in the history of Notre Dame Academy. 120 years ago the Sisters of the Congregation of Notre Dame answered the call–the need for a place where girls and young women could receive a quality, God-centered education on Staten Island.  As we take this year to celebrate, we also embark on a new Strategic Growth Plan, which will be our roadmap that will lead us into our 125th year on Grymes Hill.  And although the goals and priorities are lofty, I am confident that you, our NDA family, will continue to be there to support the future of Notre Dame Academy.

The investment made by our parents, alumnae, past parents, grandparents, and friends has sustained Notre Dame Academy for 120 years. The strong tradition of giving is a testament to the power of a Notre Dame education, enabling each young woman to find her voice and “become an agent of her own transformation and the transformation of society.” By making a gift to NDA, you are showing your commitment to the mission of Notre Dame Academy and helping bring liberating education to girls and young women for centuries to come.

Thank you for your investment and belief in Notre Dame’s mission.


Warm Regards,
