Board of Overseers

The Board of Overseers is a dedicated group of Bellarmine alumni, parents and friends who appreciate the value of a Bellarmine education and want to make it accessible to talented students who lack the necessary financial resources. As Bellarmine ambassadors, Overseers engage new and existing donors and help them see how their support for financial aid can make a difference for our students, this community and beyond.

Thanks to the passion and commitment of our Overseers, more donors than ever before are joining the Bellarmine President’s Society, the university’s premier donor recognition club.
