This year, a new athletics challenge allowed the community to give directly to their favorite Bellarmine University Athletics programs. Challenge grants of $2,500 were awarded to the men’s and women’s teams receiving the most total gifts and the most dollars during the Day of Giving. The winners:
- Women’s Volleyball - most gifts (122)
- Women’s Tennis - most dollars ($8,514)
- Men’s Lacrosse - most gifts (69) and most dollars ($10,104)
Over the past six years, alumni, students, employees, parents and friends have joined together to raise more than $1.3 million for student scholarships and other pressing university needs through 3,769 individual gifts during Bellarmine’s 24-hour online Day of Giving.
