Community support sets three records during Bellarmine's Day of Giving

Apr 11, 2018

Bellarmine University’s fifth annual online Day of Giving set three new records, thanks to gifts from Bellarmine graduates, faculty, staff, students, parents and friends.

The 24-hour campaign, from noon on April 10 to noon on April 11, generated $306,751.82 through 639 gifts from 47 states. 

The campaign raised contributions for Bellarmine’s annual fund, which provides vital support for student aid and other pressing university needs. The total includes a matching gift made by an anonymous donor from Bellarmine's Class of 1970.

Bellarmine’s president, Dr. Susan M. Donovan, said the successful campaign “supports our students who, as tomorrow’s leaders, will make a difference in the world.”

Hundreds of yard signs throughout Bellarmine’s quad recognized each donor by name.
