A Berea College clock in the snow


In 2022, generosity from friends like you helped Berea College serve more than 1,400 low-income students from Appalachia, the nation, and the world.

Your year-end gift provides tax benefits to you and continues to support Berea’s mission and students for years to come.

Help us reach our year-end goal

No Berea student is charged for tuition. Unlike other colleges where tuition supplies most of the funding, Berea depends on the endowment return for 76% of its operating costs. Another 16% of our annual budget comes from federal and state funding and miscellaneous income, while the final 8% comes from loyal alumni and friends who support Tuition Promise Scholarships through the Berea Fund.

Berea College’s mission is to provide a world-class education to students who need it most. Help us continue to educate our 1,400 students with a generous gift to the Berea Fund.

Building a Future Like No Other

Constructed in 1958, Danforth Technology Building no longer meets the needs of a fast-paced, modern technology curriculum. The new buildings will make room for innovation through cutting-edge laboratories, flexible classrooms, areas for interdisciplinary exploration, and community-oriented gathering spaces.
