President's Society

Bellarmine’s premier donor-recognition club welcomes individuals, couples and organizations who contribute $1,500 or more to the university during the fiscal year. Employer matching gifts count toward your total gift. Membership is our way of thanking you for making a significant investment in the future of our students, the university and our community.

As a member, you and your spouse/guest will enjoy complimentary President’s Society events throughout the year, including beverages at home basketball games, enhanced communications, reserved seating at guest lectures and, best of all, Knight of Knights, our annual President’s Society black-tie dinner and dance held in the fall.

Please join the President’s Society today and make a difference in the lives of young students.
