National Cathedral School has a long tradition of providing young women with an unparalleled education consisting of unique academic, artistic, and service-oriented opportunities. We pride ourselves on our dedicated faculty and staff who give our students the confidence to tackle not only academic challenges but also empower them to take on the world when they leave our classrooms. 

On March 11, 2017, over 400 community members will gather for the annual Spring Benefit to raise funds in support of student scholarship and the talented faculty and staff who teach and mentor our remarkable girls. 

List of 6 frequently asked questions.

  • Q. How can I support the Spring Benefit?

    1. Attend:  You will not only be supporting our outstanding faculty, but you will also have the opportunity to spend time with members of the NCS community. There will also be dinner, drinks, and an auction for your entertainment.  Formal invitations will be sent out in January. 
    2. VolunteerWe need volunteers and you can donate your time as it is available. We have roles for any level of involvement you can give! Contact Amanda Muela for a specific role.
    3. Donate:  Our Benefit relies on the generosity of our community to be successful. You can be a patron donor and make a cash gift, donate (or procure) auction items, or be (or find) a sponsor.
  • Q. What kinds of items do you want for the auction?

    If it’s something you would like, chances are good that other NCS families would like it too. Our auction includes vacation homes, concert tickets, behind-the-scene tours, fashion accessories, wine, and more! Contact Amanda Muela.
  • Q. What is the difference between a patron and a sponsor?

    “Patron” is the term that we use to describe our individual donors who give to the benefit at a level above the ticket price. This contribution can be made at five different levels (the highest being $5,000) and is considered an outright donation.  The gift goes directly to funding faculty salaries.
     
    A “Sponsor” is a company that gives to the benefit in order support the financial aid endowment. This provides the opportunity for marketing and exposure at the event. There are many levels of giving for sponsors, ranging from $1,000 to $10,000.
  • Q. What does the Spring Benefit support?

    Funds raised by the Spring Benefit will go to support faculty recruitment, retention, and development as well as the financial aid endowment. At NCS, we believe that our best resource is our educators so we want to ensure continued development to bring the best teachers and teaching practices to our students. Additionally, we believe that all students deserve a quality education, regardless of their family's ability to cover tuition; growing the financial aid endowment helps ensure that deserving students for years to come are able to attend NCS.
  • Q. Who attends the Spring Benefit?

    Anyone can attend the NCS Benefit, although it is mostly attended by parents and current faculty and staff.
  • Q. Where should I park?

    Parking is available in the Cathedral garage.
