Mission Advancement

killian tormey 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.


This year especially, we are so thankful for the support of our Notre Dame Academy community.  Together, we have faced the challenges of a global pandemic and have achieved something no one thought possible: Notre Dame Academy was open for in-person instruction all year without EVER having to shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Our number of generous supporters has increased this year and our Endowment is continuing to grow--all in a truly historic year.  So thank you, to our Notre Dame Academy family, for continuing to support the mission of liberating education for girls and young women.


The investment made by our parents, alumnae, past parents, grandparents, and friends has sustained Notre Dame Academy for over 117 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,
