Nearly 25% of students rely on tuition assistance to attend Notre Dame High School. Gifts to support our tuition assistance program help to maintain our tradition of making a Notre Dame education possible for the most qualified students regardless of their financial circumstances.
ThirtyOne Women is a giving circle of 30 women who commit to giving $60 each month for four years to provide a Notre Dame education for students from Our Lady of Grace Nativity School. Upon graduation, the student becomes the thirty-first woman in the circle. The funds raised by each ThirtyOne Women giving circle cover the costs associated with a high school education at Notre Dame, including tuition, books, uniforms, and other fees.
The Village Scholarship is a circle of donors who want to take an active role in ensuring that an increasing number of Black voices and stories will be included in the Notre Dame student body. Each member of the “village” pledges to a monthly gift of $50 over four years for a total donation of $2,400. The Village Scholarship provides an all-inclusive, four-year scholarship for a young woman of Black, African ancestry with financial need to attend Notre Dame.
Sister circles are a group of alums and friends who provide tuition assistance support for one student throughout her four years at Notre Dame. Each member of the circle commits to a gift of $25 per month over four years.
The annual fund is the backbone of Notre Dame San Jose's fundraising program and is directed to the yearly operating budget of the school. This includes academic and co-curricular programs, salaries, facilities and tuition assistance.
Parents of current students are requested to make a pledge to contribute to the Notre Dame Annual Fund each year to provide resources that extend beyond tuition income.
Endowment funds are critical to Notre Dame's financial stability. These permanently invested funds provide annual income for financial aid, operations and special awards. These funds reduce tuition dependency, lend increased stability to institutional financial planning and provide bottom-line support for Notre Dame's mission of providing a college preparatory education to students of all backgrounds.
The Notre Dame Center for Women's Leadership includes a brick plaza dedicated to honoring influential women. Honor your daughter, mother, grandmother, mentor or any woman who has influenced you by purchasing an engraved brick in her name.
Leaving a legacy gift to Notre Dame as part of your planned giving will ensure a strong foundation for our mission of educating young women through the 21st Century and beyond. There are numerous planned giving options and we recommend that you talk to your legal and/or financial advisors. Contact Amy Pizarro, executive director of advancement if you have questions.
