Fund-a-Need: Financial Support to Ensure Access for All


The Bellarmine experience is only possible because of our supportive, generous, and faithful community. Bellarmine students receive an unparalleled education, engaging in a rigorous and dynamic student life focused on development of the whole person with enhanced courses, extra-curricular activities, and programs. Most of all, they gain a deeper spiritual experience centered on Jesus Christ, and His message of mercy, love, and service. With your support, Bellarmine can continue to provide a transformative Jesuit education to all our students, regardless of their financial means. 


“Those donors did not know me, or that I would return to Bellarmine to occupy a leadership role one day. They simply believed that every family has value, and they understood the power of a Jesuit education in transforming the world one student at a time.”  Zeb Madison B’97, Chair of the Bellarmine Board of Directors


One Alumna who benefited greatly from your support is Jayana Ervin B'16. In this teaser clip of the Fund-a-Need video for this year's gala, hear her story as she describes what it means to attend Bellarmine.


Our Gala will be held Saturday, April 30, 2022. All funds raised for Fund-a-Need will be directed to our student Tuition Assistance financial support program, which continues to be our greatest need. What was true for Jayana is true today for more than 370 Lions, who are attending Bellarmine because of your support. Please join with other generous donors in making this year’s Fund a Need for Tuition Assistance the most successful ever.
