Making a Difference Scholarship Benefit

Making a Difference Scholarship Benefit Dinner

May 2, 2020 at 6 p.m.
Notre Dame Academy


The Board of Directors will host our first annual Making a Difference Scholarship Benefit on May 2, 2020, with a goal of raising $100,000 for 
tuition assistance while celebrating the impact of a Notre Dame Academy 
education. Because the Board of Directors has generously underwritten the
 event, 100 percent of all sponsorships, donations, and ticket sales
directly benefit students in need of tuition assistance.

Why is this important?

Notre Dame Academy nurtures the development of the whole person by
 recognizing the dignity, uniqueness, and potential of each student. Each 
year, requests for tuition assistance far surpass the funds we're able to 
provide. We cannot meet the financial need for all qualified applicants This 
inaugural Making a Difference Scholarship Benefit will enable us to offer more
 young women a Notre Dame Academy education.

May we count on you to make a difference?
