Fostering fellow and future Bereans!
Although Berea College has a large endowment to help cover student tuition costs, we still must raise over $4 million dollars to complete tuition funding each year. That’s about $2,500 per student.
Current Berea students are coming together to pay forward the gift of education through their own philanthropy. Join the Berea Patrons in an effort to raise $2,500 to complete one tuition for the 2013-2014 school year!
Berea College’s Legacy Wall proudly displays the names of those who now departed individuals who were generous enough to have either made a life income agreement with the College or included the College in their estate plans. These remarkable gifts help keep Berea College’s mission moving forward, as they are placed in the College’s endowment. There they generate the yearly support that helps provide the full-tuition scholarships enabling Berea students to receive a quality education.

Berea Fund Rally Run!
On November 9, students and alumni celebrated the spirit of Bereans everywhere by getting crazy colorful and learning how the Berea Fund supports our vibrant learning community. Check out the photos from the most colorful hour of Homecoming.
“I was given the opportunity of a life time to further my education. Currently, I am a junior at Berea College; I work at the Historic Boone Tavern Hotel as the student bellman manager. Discovering Berea has made me an example of the poem “A flower who grew from the concrete,” which exemplifies the model in which we were founded on here at the College. Berea has groomed me into a man, and an attribute to the world we live in. This town we have begun to call home has cultivated each and every one of us into worthy choices to lead this nation. I will forever be appreciative of my future alma mater, Berea College. And this is why I feel that donating to the College is crucial to the existence of the institute we have grown to love.”
Tom’s father gave to Berea College in the 1950s. Tom carried on the tradition of philanthropy and continues to give to Berea College because of its strong mission to serve those with financial disadvantage.
“It brings me great joy to help bring a world-class education to Berea’s bright and talented future leaders.”
