Towson, MD (Vocus/PRWEB) January 05, 2011
Notre Dame Preparatory School is pleased to announce that a $500,000 challenge grant from The Charles T. Bauer Foundation has been met. With the funds, the school may begin two projects honoring deceased alumna Yeardley Reynolds Love: The Yeardley Reynolds Love Field, and a scholarship in Ms. Love’s name.
In September, The Charles T. Bauer Foundation issued to match dollar-for-dollar all gifts up to $500,000 made to the Love Field. In turn, those matching monies would be used to support a full, four-year scholarship every fourth year to a deserving student. The One Love Foundation, created by the Love family in honor of Ms. Love, demonstrated outstanding leadership support in this project by donating $220,000 in gifts and pledges.
“We are deeply grateful to The Charles T. Bauer Foundation and to The One Love Foundation for enabling Notre Dame Preparatory School to honor Yeardley with two very positive and affirming projects,” says Sister Patricia McCarron, SSND, Ph.D., headmistress. “This challenge grant received tremendous support from the NDP community and beyond, locally and nationally, demonstrating the regard people hold for Yeardley and her family. Thank you to everyone who supported this community effort!”
Ms. Love was a stand-out lacrosse and field hockey player, as well as a strong student, leader, and volunteer in the NDP Class of 2006. She tragically died in May 2010 at the University of Virginia, where she played lacrosse.
A charitable organization created by the late Ted Bauer, founder of AIM Investments, the Charles T. Bauer Foundation provides support for projects mainly in Texas and Maryland.
The One Love Foundation was formed in the summer of 2010 to keep Yeardley’s spirit alive in others by promoting service, kindness, humility and good sportsmanship.
Founded in 1873 in Baltimore City, Notre Dame Preparatory School is a Catholic, independent, college preparatory school for 765 girls in grades 6-12. In 1960, the school relocated to Towson, Maryland. The School Sisters of Notre Dame own and operate the NDP, which is dedicated to fostering academic excellence, spiritual growth and the practice of social justice.
