For Giving Tuesday 2020, the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur invite you to continue St. Julie Billiart’s mission of providing education to “teach whatever is necessary to equip the students for life”. Giving Tuesday is held annually following Black Friday and Cyber Monday as a day that encourages people to do good by supporting organizations they care about.
The heart of the Sisters’ mission is education, and they provide students with a strong sense of community and values. Notre Dame de Namur schools and other learning communities change lives and it’s crucial to furnish students with the tools they need for the future that awaits them.

A few examples of the pioneering Notre Dame de Namur education programs:
• Notre Dame High School in San Jose, CA has offered a distinctive, college-preparatory education for young women in California since 1851. Its Women’s Leadership Program educates students for leadership, global citizenship and socially responsible entrepreneurship.
• At Moreland Notre Dame School in Watsonville, CA, staff, teachers, children and families in this close-knit community work together to help students learn as they face pandemic restrictions.
• The Notre Dame Virtual School is an online educational program that connects SNDdeN educational institutions and ministries, and provides a forum for teachers and students to share educational resources that broaden their global perspectives.
• Cuvilly Arts and Earth Center in Ipswich, MA, is a pioneering pre-school and kindergarten with an earth-based curriculum that helps young students appreciate all of creation.
These Notre Dame de Namur institutions transform lives and communities. We hope you’ll join us to ensure that the excellent, innovative education that the Sisters have been fostering for hundreds of years continues for many more!
