FAQ

Q. What is Les Amis de NDV Giving Day annual campaign?

Les Amis de NDV Giving Day annually invites gifts of financial donations and/or prayers from various constituencies of the school: friends, faculty, alumni, grandparents, parishioners and the business community.  We begin our Campaign with those who best understand and support the school- you, our parents. École Notre Dame des Victoires.

Q. Why are we having another NDV fundraiser? And how does Les Amis de NDV Giving Day differ from other fundraising at NDV?

$4,000 is the approximate difference between what it costs to educate an NDV student and what tuition covers.  The NDV Parents Association covers "extras" in our sports programs, athletic director, outdoor education week, cultural activities and field trips. Les Amis de NDV Giving Day helps meet on-going operational expenses and invests in capital improvements at the school. Les Amis de NDV Giving Day also allows the administration to document our community's support of the school, which helps raise funds from outside sources like foundations and corporations.

Q. How are Les Amis funds spent?

All Les Amis proceeds are spent on operations, capital improvements at the school, and scholarships.  The capital improvements portion of this years's contributions will be earmarked for continued work on air conditioning the classrooms, and safely reopening the school after months of distance learning.

Q. Don't parents have enough of a financial burden with paying tuition?

No doubt, parents make a significant commitment just by paying tuition.  In the Parent Phase of Les Amis, we seek 100% particpation in the form of financial donations and/or prayers, which is of paramount importance over dollars raised. Your participation in Les Amis demonstrates to the greater community your commitment and belief in our school.  This, in turn encourages involvement from other sources, which is the ultimate goal of Les Amis.  All parents are asked to give thoughtful reflection to what they are able to give.
