Student Philanthropy Week 2019

Student Philanthropy Week

(March 11th-March 15th)

Berea College Student Philanthropy Week is a week of events to celebrate the generosity of students through Berea Patrons. Students learn about philanthropy, its role in providing students with the No-Tuition Promise,  and win prizes by participating in games and activities around campus. 

We have a matching gift!

An anonymous donor believes in the power of student giving, pledging to give a matching gift of $25,000! This means that if Berea Patrons raise $25,000 this year, a donor will also donate $25,000, doubling the impact of each gift to Berea Patrons.

To help us reach our goal, increase your gift or Become a Berea Patron today at
