Support NDA so every girl can learn, lead and change the world 

Give Back on #GivingTuesday

#GivingTuesday is an international day of charitable giving at the beginning of the Christmas season. On Tuesday, November 30, members of our community are invited to express their gratitude for NDA by making a gift to the Fund for NDA. Help us develop the next generation of women leaders by making girls’ education and leadership a philanthropic priority.


Invest in Women & Girls

The Fund for NDA provides support for all areas of the school, including, but not limited to Academics, Arts, Athletics, Faculty Support, Financial Aid, and Technology. All gifts, whether $25 or $25,000 are vital as NDA continues its nearly 170-year tradition of educating and empowering female leaders.


Why are donations necessary?

Tuition alone does not cover the full cost of an NDA education. The Fund for NDA makes our transformative learning experience possible – retreats, clubs, intramurals, service programs – none of that would be possible without your support.



How your gift makes an impact

This year, you can make an impact in so many ways, including by supporting:

  • Educational Technology: Your investment in our educational technology platform will help ensure our faculty have access to the most innovative tools, our students can learn anytime, anywhere and we dramatically reduce our environmental footprint.

  • Faith & Justice: Support mission- and service-oriented work at NDA, including campus ministry, community service, diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives.

  • Financial Aid: Ensure that NDA can continue to enroll outstanding young women, regardless of financial circumstances.

  • Arts: Cultivate the creativity of NDA students by sustaining the school’s academic courses and co-curricular activities in the visual and performing arts.

  • Athletics: Ensure our student-athletes can train and compete with state-of-the-art gear, equipment and coaching.

  • Academics: Enrich our academic offerings, lab experiences, courses, and programming that encourage critical thinking and problem-solving skills.



Thank you for supporting NDA’s mission to educate the next generation of women leaders.
