Honorary and Memorial Gifts

A memorial donation to Notre Dame Academy is a thoughtful way to honor friends or family, living or deceased, while helping support Catholic education.  Honorary and memorial gifts are generally designated to our Annual Appeal, which provides tuition assistance to students in need.  In this way, your gift helps to promote the NDA mission of educating women to make a difference. 

The NDA Advancement Office administers honorary and memorial gifts made to Notre Dame Academy.  With every honorary gift, if requested, an acknowledgement is sent to the person honored by a donation, keeping the gift amount confidential.  Similarly, with each memorial gift, if requested, an acknowledgement is sent to the family of the deceased, again keeping the gift amount confidential.  In addition, the donor’s and recipient’s names will be published in the Notre Damian to express the school’s appreciation and gratitude.

You can make an honorary or memorial gift to Notre Dame Academy online HERE. Simply choose "Annual Fund" for your gift designation and make note that the gift is honoring or memorizing someone in the "Comments" box of the online form. 

NDA Tree Campaign

Rooted in the Celebration of Loved Ones and Beautifying Campus

Planting a memorial tree is a meaningful way to honor someone or something, commemorate an event, or mark a milestone.  Every tree planted at NDA will become a living legacy, a gift that will live on in a unique and unending way.

Through the Notre Dame Academy Tree Campaign, NDA is undergoing a reforestation.  We are planting trees of all shapes and sizes to enrich our campus and celebrate loved ones within the NDA community.  A personalized tree marker will be placed beneath each tree in the campaign to memorialize or pay tribute to a donor's designation.

If you are interested in purchasing a tree in memory or honor of a loved one, please contact the NDA Advancement Office at 859.292.7729.
