Current Funding Initiatives

Shaping our students’ futures

Bellarmine Annual Fund

Gifts to the Bellarmine Annual Fund provide immediate financial aid, scholarships and other critical support for our students. Every year, alumni, parents, and friends like you collectively help Bellarmine provide aid to our students, 41 percent of whom are first-generation students. Many of them would be unable to attend Bellarmine without this significant support.

Your investment in Bellarmine helps us attract and retain a greater number of our region’s bright, promising students and prepare them for the competitive 21st century workforce. You can be assured that your investment will make a difference for our students and this community. In fact, Bellarmine offers incoming freshmen a written guarantee, which can be read on our Bellarmine Guarantee page.

Your gifts to the Annual Fund help us fulfill these commitments and ensure that every Bellarmine student benefits from our small class sizes, dedicated faculty and individualized attention. Together, we can help these students realize their capacity for leadership and service to others. 

Every gift, no matter the size, makes a real and lasting difference. Please make your gift to the Annual Fund today.

Endowed Scholarships

You can help turn their dreams into reality, now and in the future, by establishing an endowed scholarship fund which provides a perpetual source of income—awarded to generations of Bellarmine students—through funds managed by the University. Learn more on our Endowed Scholarships page.
