Annual Appeal

COVID-19 Relief Fund for NDA Families

Dear Friends of Notre Dame Academy,

Over the past few months, our lives have been challenged in unimaginable ways due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  As we respond to the challenge to provide education in new and different ways, we are also aware that many of our families are facing significant hardships in these unprecedented times.  Our current tuition assistance program, which is largely funded through our Annual Fund, provides financial assistance to nearly 30% of our families every year and we expect that to increase as a result of the economic impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic. With the anticipated increase of need, we have created a special COVID-19 Relief Fund to provide assistance to our families struggling due to the pandemic. 

As a school founded and sponsored by the Sisters of Notre Dame, we believe that no student should be denied a Notre Dame Academy education due to financial hardships. Therefore, we are asking for your help and we are hopeful that you and our NDA community will come together to support our students in this great time of uncertainty. 

On behalf of our Notre Dame Academy family, we say, “Thank You” for your time and consideration. May you know God’s goodness this day and always.
