Dedicated Decades Competition

The Alumni Association Board is happy to introduce Dedicated Decades, a new initiative to encourage alumni support for our annual day of giving, NDA For Good. Now is the perfect time for alumni of all generations to make a difference in the lives of our students … and have a little fun while they do it! Let’s see which class years will rally together to become NDA’s most dedicated decade!


All alumni of NDA Tyngsboro. We are on a mission to see what decade(s) of NDA graduates can achieve the highest donor participation and make the largest collective gift to the Academy. 


Dedicated Decades is a friendly competition between classes to increase philanthropic participation from alumni and help the Academy meet its We Are NDA: The Million Dollar Challenge. We are closing in on $800,000 raised to date, so if each alum gave $50, we would exceed the $1,000,000 goal! 


Now through Thursday, May 6, which is our second annual day of giving, NDA For Good.  


You can participate from wherever you are! We will share updates on social media and via email.   


This is a big year for the Academy and we need help from alumni so we can continue to thrive. Your gift will support NDA’s most pressing priorities, such as tuition assistance for the 80% of Upper School students and 30% of Lower School students who receive more than $750,000 in financial aid and scholarships. Your donation will also enable the Academy to enhance its programs with investments in technology, curriculum, professional development for teachers, and updates to our nearly 100-year-old building and beautiful campus.   


Please make a gift of any size in support of NDA from now until May 6 and encourage your classmates and friends to do the same. Bragging rights go to both the decade that has the highest percentage of alumni donors and the decade that raises the most money. The decades that come out on top will be highlighted in the Spring Gateway Magazine, featured on social media/the website, and be honored with a congratulatory sign on campus! We will also have a special NDA prize for all members of the individual classes with the highest participation and largest class gift.

Thank you so much for considering a gift to NDA.  Let the games begin!
