  • Planned Giving

    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.

    We encourage you to contact Bill Colucci, Director of Planned Giving, who can assist in answering any questions you may have. There is also ample information available on our planned giving website to give you some initial direction in understanding your options.

  • Matching Gifts

    Many corporations will match philanthropic donations made by their employees. This is a great way to maximize your gift.  You could possibly double your gift with a corporate match. Simply send us the appropriate paperwork from your employer’s human resources or personnel department, and your gift to Bellarmine will be matched according to your company's guidelines.

    You can determine if your company has a matching gift program via our matching gifts webpage. If your company matches, you may be able to access the forms directly through the search.

  • Gifts In-Kind

    We are pleased to receive gifts of goods or services that may provide a budgetary savings to the school or fulfill a particular departmental need.  Document your donation via an In-Kind Donation form and remit to Ben Roseberry in the Office of Development. We recommend you consult your tax advisor to explore the tax benefits specific to such a gift.
