President's Society

The President’s Society is Bellarmine’s premier donor-recognition club which welcomes individuals, couples and organizations who contribute $1,500 or more to the university during the fiscal year (June 1 to May 31). Employer matching gifts count toward your total gift.

Your President’s Society gift means that our students can stay on track to graduate with a valuable degree, giving them a head start in the world. Membership is our way of thanking you for making a significant investment in the future of our students, the university and our community.

Membership Benefits and Featured Events
