$250,000 Annual Campaign Challenge

Raising the Bar by Rising to the Challenge

The Academy of Notre Dame has been strengthened through many years of generous philanthropic support, providing the confidence and flexibility to deliver an extraordinary education to our students. The $250,000 Annual Campaign Challenge calls upon us to build on three priorities—financial aid, faculty support, and program support—and the $250,000 Challenge allows donors to double the value of their directed or unrestricted Annual Fund gift.

How It Works

Annual Campaign donors who make or pledge a gift to financial aid, faculty support, or program support will receive a dollar-for-dollar match. In addition, any Annual Fund gift will earn a dollar-for-dollar match to the donor's choice of one of the three priorities. In most cases, the matching funds will be provided within one year after a donor's pledge is fulfilled in its entirety.

Opportunities for Support

Financial Aid

With the help of financial aid, the Academy of Notre Dame is able to recruit and enroll talented students who will contribute to our school community and benefit from the Academy experience. Financial aid also ensures that the student body mirrors society in general and opens the door to low, moderate and middle-income families who might otherwise be unable to afford a NDA education.

Faculty Support

The talented men and women who serve as our students' teachers, coaches, advisers, and mentors make the Academy of Notre Dame experience what it is. Professional development and academic training, domestic and international travel opportunities, and competitive salaries and benefits are vital to ensuring that the Academy boasts the very best faculty of any school within the region.

Program Support

The Academy of Notre Dame strives to pursue innovative academic programs that equip every student with the 21st-century skills to be a successful and informed citizen. Through collaborative, interdisciplinary learning supplemented by technology and travel experiences, the school remains focused on the education, development, and well-being of every student.

Ways to Participate

Gifts of all sizes will enable the Academy of Notre Dame to reach its goal. As our Board of Directors have noted, our Annual Campaign success depends on the broadest possible participation of everyone. New match opportunities running through August 31, 2017, will allow donors at all giving levels to expand the impact of their support for the school.

Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is the way most alumni, parents, and friends will support the Annual Campaign. Each year the Annual Fund underwrites a portion of the school's operating budget and makes the experience of every student possible. Learn more at www.ndatyngsboro.org/annualfund.

Capital Giving

Capital gifts commonly support campus buildings and grounds or the endowment (e.g., scholarship funds). These gifts may also be unrestricted and used at the discretion of the school. Learn more by contacting at the Institutional Advancement Office at 978-649-7611 ext. 321
