babysafehaven - Abandoned baby calls to mind Safe Haven laws - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
The future of Baby Safe Haven law awareness is in the /hands of young people who will go out and tell their peers on all platforms of the media that young people listen to, watch, and read. The regions who have young advocates and spokespeople are the most successful in spreading the word about the laws, hotlines and info web sites among the 13 to 30 year old demographic. We have just started the…
UrKidsWillPay - Lovelace indicted in wife\'s death - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
"You don't get indicted on nothing." Tell that to Rick Perry or Tom Delay before him. Innocent people get indicted all the time...not that it applies in this situation or doesn't apply. We don't know the facts that were presented at the hearing and even if we knew what was presented, we don't have the benefit of those facts being challenged. The potential defendent and/or his…
HiDawnG - Abandoned baby calls to mind Safe Haven laws - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
I can't help but believe that if the mother who abandoned this little baby had known about the law, she wouldn't now be being tracked down by the police. The Baby Safe Haven law offers a safe, legal, option for a desperate parent in crisis. The law says a parent hand their unharmed baby, 30 days old or younger, to staff at a hospital, fire or police department. No questions asked. Thanks…
1950Brutus - Durbin makes fund-raising stop in Quincy - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Dick "Pee Wee" Durbin apparently doesn't see taxes as a problem - no mention of it in his statement. Maybe the problem of "jobs that don't pay enough money" would decrease if the taxes that come out of this pay are decreased.
EgoReputo - Hiding public records in Illinois now a Class 4 felony - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
"..... This law should be of special concern to public officials who are in charge of producing and maintaining public records. Clerks, recorders, finance workers, comptrollers and Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA officers are some of the primary caretakers of public records and public records requests." This new law should spell big trouble for the Quincy School District. Anybody know what's…

QND Annual Fund Drive goal is $418,000

QND Annual Fund Drive goal is $418,000

7 months, 2 weeks ago From QND

Quincy Notre Dame kicks-off its 37th Annual Fund Drive with a goal of $418,000.

Each year, two chairpersons take up the fundraising challenge to invest in future leaders of the community. This year, Ralph Oakley and Jennifer Winking ’84 are joining over 60 others who previously have donated leadership to the campaign as general chairpersons.  

The business phase of the campaign, which has four divisions, runs for six weeks starting today.  

The parish phase titled “QND Commitment Sunday” will be held March 1-2, 2014, in Quincy and Hannibal, Mo., Catholic parishes

The final phase of the drive, held May 5-15, is the Annual Alumni Phon-a-thon during which QND students, alumni and friends will contact out-of-town alumni for support.

As a Catholic institution of secondary education, Quincy Notre Dame relies heavily on private support.  The Annual Fund Drive has raised over $11 million.

QND currently has 421 students.

 

What exactly is the QND Annual Fund Drive?

Dollars raised through the Annual Fund provide support for the operating budget each year.  Tuition and fees do not cover the full cost of educating a student at QND (cost per pupil $5,850; tuition $4,900). The Annual Fund helps make up the difference after tuition revenues and other grants are exhausted.  The Annual Fund donations are used for the present school year.

 How can my gift make a difference for QND?

Every gift - no matter what size – makes a difference!  Last year, gifts to the Annual Fund provided more than $400,000 in support of the school.  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.
