Quincy Notre Dame Fund Drive

A Foundation for Life

The 2017 Quincy Notre Dame Fund Drive raised over $447,000 in gifts and pledges. Nearly 200 volunteers led the 30th QND Fund Drive, which began January 20 at a kick-off breakfast at QND.

The QND Fund Drive keeps tuition affordable by paying a portion of the school’s operating expenses to close the gap between the cost to educate and student tuition. The campaign also provides financial assistance to students. Over the past 39 years, more than $12 million has been contributed to QND’s fund drives.

Kurt Stuckman, executive director of the QND Foundation, noted the importance of focusing and providing donors with information as to how investments positively impact QND. “We continue to work hard to ensure our donors are well aware of the impact they make by donating to QND. It is critical for supporters of QND to see their investment in action. The results illustrate the success generated by great leadership and tremendous community support,” states Stuckman.


The next portion of the drive took place in Quincy and Hannibal Catholic parishes. Parishioners were asked for their pledges and contributions during Commitment Weekend, March 4-5.

The last portion of the campaign, seeked out-of-town alumni support through contact by current QND students and volunteers during the Alumni Phon-a-thon, May 1-4.


How does the money collected from the Fund Drive impact QND?

  • Helps bridge the gap between the cost of tuition and the cost to educate.
  • Supports operational costs of Quincy Notre Dame High School
  • Helps provide financial assistance to QND students

The Foundation has raised more than $12 million in the past 38 years. 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.

How can my gift make a difference?

Every gift — no matter what size – makes a difference! Last year, gifts to the Fund Drive provided more than $440,000 in support of the school’s operating budget. Your generosity has an immediate effect. Gifts are added to the operating costs for the current year. What’s more, your support encourages others to give. Many foundations and corporations that offer financial support and other assistance are reassured of the integrity of Quincy Notre Dame because strong supporters are at the heart of its own community.
