Our students know that by just attending NDA, they are altering the course of the Academy forever. The same is true of our alums. You changed NDA when you were a student, and you can continue to do so as a graduate by being an active donor whose gifts advance the Academy. Every year, alums honor their time as students by paying it forward through the NDA Annual Fund. The generous and loyal support of our alums allows NDA to bolster financial aid, recruit the very best faculty, and improve the student experience.
Your class reunion offers an opportunity to reflect on what this Academy means to you, to renew your ties to our community, and to commemorate your place in NDA’s history. What better way to celebrate your shared past than doing something significant to ensure the Academy’s future?
The Notre Dame Academy that you knew has changed in some ways, and so have you. But at its core NDA remains a community characterized by a balance of challenge and support for students as they push their personal limits and pursue countless opportunities. Join your classmates and together make generous reunion gifts that will make a difference to generations of students to come.
Your Reunion Class Gift
Celebrated every five years after graduation, reunions are more than just an opportunity to reconnect with old classmates. It is an opportunity to commemorate your Notre Dame experience with your Reunion Class Gift through the Annual Fund, and many choose to boost their giving during a reunion year.
The Reunion Class Gift celebrates the entirety of each class' philanthropy to the Academy during their respective milestone year. Although the fiscal year ends on June 30, we encourage our reunion year alumni to make their contributions before the Reunion celebration. The Reunion Class Gift includes all contributions to the Academy received in the current fiscal year (July 1 to June 30) and allows classmates to support the priority of their choice. The classes that have reached the highest participation and the greatest impact by June 5 will be recognized during the reunion celebration, however the challenge will extend through to June 30, 2021. After we cross the finish line, the final results will be shared with each reunion class.
