2018 QND Fund Drive Announces Goal of $434,500

Co-Chairs – Jared Haugh ’90 and Andy Deters ‘89

Quincy, Ill. – Quincy Notre Dame, as a Catholic co-educational school, seeks to build a community of learners among its faculty, staff, students and parents. Founded on faith in God and trust among its members, this community strives to make Catholic values an integral part of its existence. Quincy Notre Dame fosters an environment of consideration and acceptance, while challenging its members to develop their potential through strong educational and extracurricular programs. Quincy Notre Dame strives to prepare its students to assume vital Christian roles in a constantly changing world.

Quincy Notre Dame is about to renew this challenge as it kicks-off its 41st Fund Drive with a goal of $434,500.  Each year, two chairpersons take up the fundraising challenge to invest in future leaders of the community. This year, Jared Haugh ‘90 and Andy Deters ’89 are joining over 60 others who previously have donated leadership to the campaign as general chairpersons.

The business phase of the campaign, which has four divisions, runs for six weeks starting today. The parish phase, Commitment Weekend, will be held March 3-4, in Quincy and Hannibal, Mo., Catholic parishes.  The final phase of the drive, the Alumni Phon-a-thon, will begin May 1, and consists of QND students, alumni and friends contacting out-of-town alumni for support.

As a Catholic institution of secondary education, Quincy Notre Dame relies heavily on private support. During the past 40 years, this support has been outstanding. The Fund Drive has raised over $13 million.

The Fund Drive has seen tremendous growth since 1977. With that success comes high expectations for continued growth, as the needs of QND also grow. The Fund Drive is an essential part of a balanced QND budget. Quincy Notre Dame depends on committed community volunteers to provide leadership during the Fund Drive and to help the school meet its goals.

Dollars raised through the Fund Drive provide support for the operating budget each year. Tuition and fees do not cover the full cost of educating a student at QND.  The Fund Drive helps make up the difference after tuition revenues and other grants are exhausted. The Fund Drive donations are used for the present school year.

QND presently has 402 students.
