Thank you for your loyalty and commitment to Notre Dame Academy. Your giving has an immediate impact on our school. Whether you are a student, parent, alum, relative, friend or business partner, we are grateful to count you as a member of the NDA community. Your gifts help Notre Dame Academy maintain a quality of educational excellence now and for future generations.
When you support Notre Dame Academy, you're investing in the next generation of NDA graduates—women of faith, women of academic excellence, women of vision and leadership, and women of service and compassion.
The Fund for Notre Dame Academy The Annual Fund is the cornerstone of philanthropy at NDA. As the most important annual fundraising priority, the Fund for Notre Dame Academy provides immediate resources needed for the academic year that cannot be found elsewhere. Your gift to the school supports every critical area and every program we offer. Support for the Fund for NDA is a fundamental way our community can partner with the school as we advance our mission to grow as we are Called to be One NDA. Gifts impact each student and teacher in myriad ways both inside and outside the classroom. Making a Difference Tuition Assistance Initiative Now more than ever, families need our help. There is an immediate need to help our families who may face sudden financial hardship due to the effects of COVID-19. Your support is crucial as we work together with our families during this unprecedented time. Please consider making a gift today to help our NDA community and ensure that our current students are able to continue their NDA education and incoming students are provided the opportunity to attend NDA.
Because the Board of Directors has generously underwritten this initiative, 100 percent of all sponsorships and donations directly benefit students in need of tuition assistance.
CARES ACT If our discussion on helping our school achieve our fundraising goals has inspired you, I share this information in hopes it will be helpful as you make important decisions about how best to further support us this year. As you probably know, the U.S. Congress has passed the CARES Act -- this act has many facets and also makes certain modifications to help incentivize philanthropic contributions. As part of these changes, the CARES Act is allowing a 100% deduction allowance for cash gifts to charities for the entire 2020 tax year, up to your adjusted gross income. Previously, the allowance has been 60% allowance of adjusted gross income.
