Haugh and Deters to Lead QND’s 41st Fund Drive

Jared Haugh and Andy Deters have been selected as chairpersons of the Quincy Notre Dame Foundation’s 41st Fund Drive.

The 2018 drive kicks off January 19 with a breakfast meeting at the school during which this year’s fundraising goal will be announced.

The QND Foundation has raised more than $13 million in the past 40 years and exceeded its 2017 goal of $434,000 by $29,000. The money raised helps keep tuition affordable by paying a portion of the school’s operating costs and closing the gap between the cost to educate a student and tuition.  The Fund Drive additionally supports QND’s financial aid program. QND’s 2017-18 enrollment is 403, with 30% receiving financial assistance.

Jared Haugh is a 1990 graduate of Quincy Notre Dame High School and Southern Illinois University. He is the co-owner of Duker & Haugh Funeral Home. Haugh is a member of St. Francis Solanus Catholic Church. He serves as a board member of the Quincy Catholic Elementary Schools Foundation and is a member and past president of the Quincy Exchange Club. Haugh and his wife, Elizabeth, have three children: Haley (a freshman at Culver Stockton College), Abby (a junior at QND) and Seth (a seventh grader at St. Francis Solanus School).

“Quincy Notre Dame is a vibrant and vital part of our community. The spiritual aspect and learning environment that is provided at Quincy Notre Dame helps build our young people into the leaders and contributors of our future community and world. The QND Fund Drive is the most important piece of our efforts to provide funds for tuition assistance and the mission that is QND,” stated Haugh.

Andy Deters is a 1989 graduate of Quincy Notre Dame High School and Illinois State University.  He works as a packaging consultant for Chicago-based Midland Paper Company.  Deters is a member of St. Peter Catholic Church.  He is involved in several parish ministries at St. Peter and is active in the Quincy Cursillo movement. Deters and his wife, Jennifer (Hipps) ’90, have two children: Jack (a senior at QND) and Caroline (a freshman at QND).

“Quincy Notre Dame is and has been a blessing in the lives of so many young people.  It is a place where students can grow intellectually, while developing spiritually. QND provides a pathway for young people to find their way to becoming good, responsible adults,” said Deters. “QND is as strong as it’s ever been, but we have an obligation to create a place where future students can express their faith while becoming leaders in our world.  We need QND now more than ever.”                       

In addition to the leadership of Haugh and Deters, QND’s Fund Drive will be supported by more than 250 volunteers throughout the business, parish and alumni phases of the drive.

The business phase is led by:

Commercial division leaders; Patrick Cook ’02, Corporate Account Manager, DOT Foods; Jill Kelly, Community Volunteer; Andy Tappe ’00, Financial Advisor, Merrill Lynch.

The first six weeks of QND’s Fund Drive, beginning January 19, will focus on donations from the business community.  The parish phase will follow with Commitment Weekend March 3-4, when members of Quincy and Hannibal’s Catholic parishes are asked for donations.  The alumni phase will begin May 1 with the phon-a-thon, during which QND graduates are asked to contribute funds to their alma mater.

QND’s Fund Drive was established in 1977.  It is overseen by the QND Foundation, which was founded in 1968.  QND alumnus Kurt Stuckman ‘91 is the QND Foundation’s executive director.
