To ensure a strong future for Bellarmine College Preparatory, the institution and its mission is reliant upon the generosity of others, today and tomorrow. There are numerous Planned Giving options by which donors may leave a legacy of support that will have a positive impact on generations of students to come. Remembering Bellarmine in your estate plans can also assist in meeting your financial and tax-planning needs.  Whether through bequests, charitable remainder trusts, or other means, gifting Bellarmine through Planned Giving is a wonderful way to fulfill your philanthropic wishes and honor a lifetime of generosity.

Those who have designated Bellarmine in their estate plans are recognized as members of the Mater Dei Legacy Society.

Athletic Field Project

We embarked upon a two-phase renovation project of the Brigit Whims soccer/lacrosse field as well as the Ghiorso football field and Terry Ward track in 2015. The project included turf replacement for both fields, upgrading the infill material to an innovative CoolPlay system. The project also included replacement of the seating at the soccer/lacrosse field. Seat dedications, in your name or in honor of a student, graduate, relative, friend or organization, are available. An engraved nameplate will be affixed to each dedicated seat.

Your support is critical to the success of our campaign. To make a contribution to the field project and/or dedicate a seat at the Soccer/Lacrosse Field, click HERE.

Theatre Seat Dedication

Support Bellarmine's Visual and Performing Arts programs and the Sobrato Center for Humanities and the Arts by dedicating a seat in the Main Stage Theatre in your name or to honor a graduate, relative, friend or organization. An engraved aluminum nameplate will be affixed to each dedicated seat.

Click HERE to proceed with the dedication. Simply select "In Support of - Other" and specify "Theatre Seat Dedication." Alternatively, you may download, complete and return the Theatre Seat Dedication Form.

No-Cost Fundraising Programs

Parents, grandparents, and friends of Bellarmine are encouraged to support the school through Amazon Smile, eScrip, S.H.A.R.E.S., and magazine subscription orders and renewals. These programs incur no additional cost to you beyond the goods or services you are purchasing, but have the potential to yield tremendous benefit to Bellarmine’s students.
