The Notre Dame Urban Education Center is committed to providing service where the need is greatest. Most of our families cannot afford to pay for the services we provide. While NDUEC relies heavily on volunteers, there are still hard costs associated with running a quality program, and Center.

Thus, we look to the generosity and support of the community

We invite you to join with us in empowering children and strengthening families to achieve success in school and in life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there really a need for NDUEC?
A dangerously high number of Northern Kentucky children drop out of school between 8th grade and high school. NDUEC was designed to address this issue by providing one-on-one tutoring, academic support, cultural and arts enrichment and structured physical education for some of the most at-risk and under-served children in our community.

Why should I invest in NDUEC?
Beyond access to health, safety and social services, children need opportunities to enrich their lives and help them be successful. Your contribution enables children and families access an intensive level of academic support and enrichment, and to benefit from this effective program.

What difference will my gift make?
Your investment supports the provision of a unique model that combines consistent, positive and personalized tutoring, mentoring, enrichment and play. Through the collaborative efforts of the Sisters of Notre Dame, community organizations, volunteers and generous donors like you, our students improve their grades, their self-esteem and their positive trajectory toward academic success and a more productive fulfilling life.

What is in it for me?
You will have the satisfaction of knowing that you are directly assisting these children and their families. In addition, your gift is tax deductible as permitted by applicable law and you will be recognized by the Notre Dame Urban Education Center through a grateful listing on our Annual Donor Honor Roll.

Can I dedicate the gift to someone?
Donors may make a gift to NDUEC in honor or memory of someone special or to mark an important occasion by noting such at the time the gift is made. We ask that the donor include relevant contact information so that a note can be sent to the individual or family acknowledging the gift on behalf of the donor. There will also be a special mention of these gifts in the donor listing.

What do you accept?
While we prefer monetary donations either through our website or by cash or check, we do also have other ways you can give. Other ways to donate include: securities (stocks and bonds), a charitable bequest, life insurance, or retirement plan assets. Please get in touch with us if you plan to donate using these mediums.
