Annual Giving

Since 1851, Bellarmine College Preparatory has, in the Jesuit tradition, offered a unique education of the "whole person": intellectually, physically and spiritually. The success of our Annual Giving program enables Bellarmine to be the exemplary school it is today. The financial support of parents, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, businesses, foundations and friends helps us fulfill our mission.

The Bellarmine Fund

The Bellarmine Fund (inclusive of the former Parents' Fund) provides essential resources, beyond tuition, which are critical to the operation of the school and our ability to provide outstanding academic programs and co-curricular activities.

Unrestricted gifts contributed to The Bellarmine Fund support and advance educational opportunities for our students in a variety of programs, including athletics, visual and performing arts, speech and debate, robotics, campus ministry and transformative immersion journeys. In short, The Bellarmine Fund is essential to providing each student with a unique "Bellarmine experience."

Direct Financial Aid Fund

Bellarmine is deeply committed to educating qualified students, regardless of the financial circumstances of their families. Our need-based Financial Aid Program continues to play a vital role in maintaining the school’s cultural and socio-economic diversity. In academic year 2017-2018, with nearly 25 percent of our students receiving tuition assistance, Bellarmine’s Financial Aid budget is $4.4 million. We rely on donations each year for the Direct Financial Aid Fund to help meet the need of our students and their families.

Bellarmine College Preparatory is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Our tax identification number is 94-1160938. Your gift is tax deductible.
