Day of Giving

Every Gift Makes a Difference

There are many ways you can support Notre Dame Academy through volunteering, financial gifts, attending or sponsoring­­ fundraising events, promoting the school and prayers. 

Why Support Notre Dame Academy?

When you support Notre Dame Academy, you are helping to ensure our students will have top-notch teachers and staff, current technology needs are met, small class sizes are maintained, opportunities for extra-curricular participation are available, and ample learning support is sustained.


Ways You Can Give


NDA depends on fundraising, in-kind gifts, and special events to support and enrich its curriculum and programs and close the funding gap. Day of Giving is our largest fundraiser and our engaged community also does several community events throughout the year. The 2023-2024 NDA Annual Fundraising goal is $405,000. This amount is required to bridge the difference between revenue and the cost to educate our students.


Sharing the gift of time is a tremendous gift. We rely on volunteers for many of our school’s needs including helping to run our fundraising events, sorting used uniforms, helping out in the lunchroom and supervising at recess. Whether you have one hour or more to give there are many ways you can help our students by sharing your time.


Every dollar we receive makes a difference in a student’s education. Thank you for your support of Catholic education at Notre Dame Academy. 


Giving the gift of time spent in prayer for our school is the greatest gift anyone can give. Whether you can offer a Novena, pray the rosary or spend time in adoration, we appreciate your gift of prayers.

Supporting Our School

Make a Donation

The gift of prayer is highly valued by our school community. We are so blessed to have two neighboring parishes who are supporting us daily. Additionally, financial gifts make a significant difference in the education we are able to provide. Every dollar we receive in donations goes directly to benefit students and teachers as we improve our curricular programs, create a warm and caring environment, and provide financial assistance. We believe every family that wants a Catholic education for their child deserves to receive it.

Throughout the school year, we gratefully receive your gifts of items such as office supplies, computers and gently used equipment.

Please consider a gift to our Annual Fund and make a difference in the education we provide. Stretch your donation further by considering a recurring gift or an employee match. Learn if your company offers matching funds. Other ways to donate include sending a check to the school, utilizing Employee Payroll Giving Programs and the donation of stock. You can also include Notre Dame Academy in your estate planning.

The U.S. Internal Revenue Service recognizes Notre Dame Academy as a 501(c) (3) organization, and therefore your donations may be tax deductible. Contact your tax advisor for further information.

“It was a blessing for me to be able to attend school Mass this morning and then join your class on the wonderful experience of the prayer walk.  It is unique experiences like this, and all the other meaningful less noticeable things, that make me so grateful that our children have the opportunity to attend NDA and that people like you make it such a loving community.”
