Planned Giving

Gifts that last a lifetime

The Cornerstone Society

The Cornerstone Society honors donors who have pledged a planned gift to Notre Dame High School. These gifts indicate a commitment to the long-term success of the School and are generally made through bequests and trusts.

Planned Gifts help ensure the long-term financial strength of the School, and help provide future generations of students with the exceptional learning experience Notre Dame students enjoy today.

If you have already included Notre Dame in a bequest or other planned gift, we hope you will let us know. Your willingness to be named as a member of the Cornerstone Society inspires others to consider a similar gift.

If you have an interest in learning more about the Cornerstone Society and how you can make a gift to the School that will last a lifetime, please contact Maggie Kelly, SVP – Advancement Director at 609–882–7900 or via email at

Discover the Benefits of Giving Wisely

There are many ways to give to support Notre Dame High School. You can donate, art, stocks, life insurance, your home, and various other options. Many of these donations can be set up not only to help our cause, but also to provide some financial benefit to the donor as well. These benefits can come in the form of income for life, tax credits, and even estate planning tax reduction techniques. Such techniques are called "planned gifts".

We encourage you to contact our planned giving partners, Wolf-Collins Wealth Management to have a personal one on one discussion about planned giving and the various options that may be available to your specific situation. 

Meet Our Donors

Elizabeth "Bee" McLeod '79

Sadly Ms. McLeod passed away very suddenly in December of 2019. She leaves Notre Dame with a lasting legacy.

As one of the youngest freshmen in the history of Notre Dame High School, (admitted at the age of 12) Ms. McLeod fondly recalls that her age “was never an issue thanks to the sense of community at ND.” 

Sandra Persichetti ’61

Ms. Persichetti was inspired to leave a planned gift to Notre Dame because she believes that without the foundation of her business education at ND, she would not have gone on to become one of the first female real estate developers in the state of New Jersey.
