Endowed Scholarship Opportunities

A Catholic education is a tremendously valuable tool as we prepare our students for the productive lives they will lead well into the future. In order for Catholic education to remain affordable, the Quincy Notre Dame Foundation depends on and strongly encourages endowed scholarships. An endowed scholarship can be started at QND with $10,000. These funds are invested and dividends from the principle are what support yearly tuition assistance to QND students. More importantly these endowed scholarships last in perpetuity. Thirty percent of QND students receive some sort of financial aid while attending QND.

Endowed scholarships can be named as a class legacy, in honor of a parent/family member, current or deceased student/classmate, or even a friend. QND has 100 endowed and annual scholarships that represent over $185,000 annually toward tuition assistance to QND students. Once established, an endowed scholarship can be donated to at anytime throughout the year: birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas, or just a way to say “thank you.”

Why are endowed scholarships so important? The following is a quote from a QND student that captures why they are imperative. “QND has instilled a plethora of values into me that will last a lifetime. Students are able to freely express their religious values and share with others what their religion means to them. Because of your gift, students like me have been able to attend this phenomenal school,” Rachel, Class of 2009.

Should you have any questions or want to inquire about setting up and endowed scholarship please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Kurt Stuckman, QND Foundation Executive Director, 1400 South 11th Street, Quincy, IL 62301 at (217) 224-2598 or kstuckman@quincynotredame.org.

We hope you would consider a gift to the Quincy Notre Dame Foundation to start an endowed scholarship. Scholarships are awarded based on financial need and included in tuition assistance packages. The school determines recipients based on financial need reported by the Private School Service (PSAS). They are granted as partial tuition scholarships.
