Mission Advancement


killian clifford

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. Two of our exciting events are Homecoming (our reunion for Alumnae in October) and our President’s Cup Golf Outing and Tennis Tournament (run in the Spring). Both events celebrate the spirit and generosity that make Notre Dame Academy a truly special place.


After an extremely successful year, in which we were finally able to celebrate the 400th anniversary of our congregation’s foundress, St. Marguerite Bourgeoys, we now look to an even brighter future.  The inaugural Fall Gala bolstered our already strong endowment; we were able to make many improvements to the facilities on our 13 acre campus; all due to the overwhelming support of our NDA community.  Now, we embark on a new Strategic Growth Plan, which will be our roadmap for the next several years.  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 119 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,
