Giving Priorities

In addition to providing annual fund support through the Bruin Club, donors may opt to give to a specific sport or endow their own scholarship to benefit a specific team. All gifts to these three areas accrue Bruin Club benefits. Donors may choose to make a gift to any of the following teams:

Endowed Athletic Scholarships

The largest expense any athletic department incurs is the cost of scholarships for deserving student athletes. Belmont Athletics has 128 scholarships that it supports annually. Our long term goal is to endow as much of this cost as possible. The minimum gift to establish a scholarship is $25,000 payable over up to five year. Until December 31, 2020, all scholarship endowment gifts of $25,000 or more, up to a limit of $1.5 million, will be matched as part of We Believe: The Campaign for Belmont University.

The Betty Wiseman Mission Fund

The Betty Wiseman Mission Fund supports several mission trips run by the Athletic Department on an annual basis. While gifts to this fund do not accrue Bruin Club benefits, they help subsidize student-athletes who wish to serve others through missions, in addition to the annual operating costs of these trips. In 2017, 21 student-athletes helped raise nearly $26,000 to travel to Haiti to work with “Streets of Hope,” and the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota as part of the Betty Wiseman Mission Fund.
