Ways to Give

Give Monthly

Become a valuable monthly donor and invest in lives of great promise year-round. Your generous monthly gift will go farther for students with limited resources and unlimited potential. A gift of $250/month completes the cost of a Tuition Promise Scholarship for one student.

Online Giving

Make a one-time gift or recurring gift with your credit card on a secure site.


Send your check by mail, payable to:

Berea College
CPO 2216
Berea, KY 40404

Planned Gifts

With thoughtful planning you can provide long-lasting support and impact the lives of students. Discover the tax-saving benefits of an annuity or trust which provide income for life, or establish your legacy by adding Berea to your estate plans.

Donor Advised Funds

A donor advised fund gives you the flexibility to determine how much and how often a gift is made to Berea College with a tax advantage. It is an excellent way to amplify your charitable giving and achieve your philanthropic goals.

IRA Rollover

You may be able to take your required minimum distribution (RMD) from your IRA for the tax year with an IRA charitable distribution or “rollover.”

Funds can be transferred directly to Berea College by your IRA plan manager without increasing your taxable income.

These gifts may be tax-deductible at fair market value on the date that the College officially records the securities in its name.
