Annual Fund. Honor our History. Join our Vision.
Notre Dame College Prep invites alumni, friends and parents to partner with the school through an annual gift. We recognize and welcome all size gifts throughout the year. Supporting the Annual Fund is a way to give back for the gifts NDCP gave to you. The friends made, the lessons learned, the memories forged, all last a a lifetime. Your gift makes a critical difference in maintaining excellence and creating opportunities.
Your annual donation goes into action immediately and has a direct impact on the current Dons by sustaining operations. Contributions to the Annual Fund do help us retain driven and compassionate faculty, enhance technology, grow extracurricular, and grant tuition assistance to families in need. Currently, more than 30% of our student families receive tuition assistance. We accept their struggle in fulfillment of our mission to empower lifelong learners in a tradition of faith, scholarship and service Click here to view the 2014 Annual Fund - 60th Anniversary Appeal information.
Matching Gifts - Double or triple your gift to NDCP!
Does your employer or your spouse’s employer match your charitable donations? Many companies offer this benefit to employees with a 1:1 or 2:1 match. During the past 2 years matching gifts to NDCP have amounted to almost $65,000! Matching gift dollars will not count towards an additional tax deduction but it will help you qualify for an annual giving society. Contact your Human Resources Department today and ask if they match. Need assistance with applications and determining eligibility? Contact: Monica Peterson at 847.779.8610.
Giving appreciated stock is a wonderful way to receive tax benefits on such gifts and support the school.
A donation to NDCP as a qualified charity may be deducted on your federal income tax return as an itemized deduction. The tax planning benefits of donating appreciated shares of stock or a fund include deducting the amount of the charitable donation AND avoiding the unrealized gains on the appreciated shares. This is because of the general rule that the deduction for property donated to charity is equal to the fair market value of the donated property. Where the donated property is "capital gain" property, the donor does not recognize the gain on the donated property. These rules create a "double play" of tax benefits: A charitable deduction AND avoiding tax on the unrealized capital gains of the donated property.
If you authorize a stock transfer please contact Monica Peterson at 847-779-8610 to make sure that you are identified as the donor and credited for your generosity.
