Berea and COVID-19. To protect Berea students from the COVID-19 pandemic, we suspended on-campus instruction and sent students home in March. We continue to house and feed those for whom leaving campus was not an option. Such disruption has led to increased costs to Berea, from supporting students with funds to get home safely to losing hundreds of thousands of student labor hours. Now more than ever, Berea College needs your support in the face of this global crisis.

William ’22 watched his father struggle with cancer all throughout his childhood. Now he is studying for medical school so he can research cancer and help keep families together.

Your gifts help provide students like William with an excellent education without the burden of tuition. Please give today.

Help us reach our 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 74% of its operating costs. Another 16% of our annual budget comes from federal and state funding and miscellaneous income, while the final 10% 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 1,600 students with a generous gift to the Berea Fund before our fiscal year ends on June 30th.

Raised: $4,381,524 | Goal: $4,825,000 | Total Scholarships: 1,460 of 1,600
