The Annual Fund is Notre Dame's yearly campaign to raise funds supporting the ongoing education of its students. Notre Dame, like all private schools, relies on the generosity of its community to bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost of a Notre Dame education. The Annual Fund touches all aspects of the school. 



Are you considering a legacy gift to Notre Dame? There are many options and many variations of each. Notre Dame supporters may wish to remember Notre Dame in their wills, trusts, life insurance designations, and retirement assets. We recognize and honor all individuals who make this commitment. To make us aware of your planned gift, or for more information, contact Carrie Byrne Putelo at (315) 724-7118 ext. 35 or cputelo@notredameutica.org



Please consider a donation to Notre Dame's Endowment Fund. The endowment ensures that students from all economic backgrounds have the opportunity to benefit from and contribute to the Notre Dame experience. It will also help to provide resources to the growing number of families we serve as we:  

  • Continue to expand and enrich our schools programs 
  • Build on community and college partnerships 
  • Provide long-term financial viability 
  • Expand our global profile 

Each year, Notre Dame is fortunate to attract a large number of applicants who want to fulfill their dreams with us, yet every year, economic realities are making it harder and harder for families to help their sons and daughters reach their highest potential. In ever-increasing numbers, outstanding students - thrilled with Notre Dame and succeeding in their classes - are experiencing financial problems that seem insurmountable. As a close-knit community, we look for ways to help these students, thus the endowed scholarship fund. Our goal is to create a $4 million endowed fund that will allow us to grant $200,000 each year - over and above our yearly scholarship grants - to students who find themselves in financial difficulty. These students and others like them deserve our support! For more information, contact Carrie Byrne Putelo at (315) 724-7118 ext. 35 or cputelo@notredameutica.org

Thank you for your generosity.
