Annual Appeal

2019-20 Annual Fund

Dear Friends of Notre Dame Academy,

Gratitude and generosity are important elements of a Notre Dame Academy education. Each day we see the hand of God and hear His voice in our students, and we are moved to gratitude. We are forever grateful to the Sisters of Notre Dame and continue to benefit from their service to our school community. Their commitment to educate young women is the source and substance of our tradition of excellence in Catholic education. 

We also acknowledge the many gifts of our community, alumnae, parents and friends who support us through their time, talent and treasure. We invite you to be part of our story by considering a gift to the NDA 2019-20 Annual Fund. I am writing today to request your support.

Each year we seek to raise funds that supplement the difference between tuition and the cost of educating each student (approximately $1500 per student).  We want to ensure that a Notre Dame education is available to any young woman who aspires to join our more than 10,000 alumnae. The Annual Fund supports our tuition assistance program and helps to keep tuition at a rate well below our private school counterparts in the Greater Cincinnati area.  Through your past generosity and support, you have helped us provide this Notre Dame education to our students. We are truly appreciative for the important role you have played, and are grateful that you are part of our Notre Dame family. Your participation and support makes all the difference! 

Thank you for your time and consideration. May you know God’s goodness this day and always.
