Notre Dame High School
Tradition of Excellence
Each year, we ask for your contributions to the Annual Fund, in order to help us continue the Notre Dame tradition of excellence. Additionally, we look to planned gifts as a way to ensure the longevity of our wonderful school.
By definition, planned giving is a major gift that comes from the donor’s financial or estate planning. Gifts could come from appreciated securities or stock, real estate, a retirement plan or even cash – but they are generally made from outside of one’s discretionary income. Some donors are in a position to make the gift (or multiple gifts) during their lifetime, but many make the gift as a bequest in their will. Planned gifts can offer many benefits to the donor, including tax benefits or the potential for returned income.
Often times, a planned gift is put in an endowment fund, which allows the one-time gift to grow and provides a permanent source of funds for the intended beneficiary. Notre Dame High School is blessed to receive financial support from two endowment funds created by generous donors. We ask you to consider making a contribution to these existing funds or, if you’re able, consider opening your own endowment fund with Notre Dame High School as the beneficiary.
