In 2019, Belmont Athletics set its path to increasing private philanthropic support to the department by setting a goal of raising $2,000,000 for athletics by 2023. We are proud to announce that we have accomplished this feat in the 2022 fiscal year, with a record $6,682,228 dollars raised! The standard for excellence at Belmont continues to be elevated, thanks in large part to individuals and families like yourself who go the extra mile to provide for Belmont’s student-athletes. We cannot say THANK YOU loud or often enough! It remains our goal to continue to eclipse the $2 million annual fundraising mark each year, with an ultimate aim to consistently raise $5 million annually to Belmont Athletics by 2027, with 1,000 or more annual Bruin Club members. Now, more than ever, we need your help to keep Belmont Athletics on its current trajectory and helps us represent “The Best of Belmont”. Informational graphs on the past five years of athletic giving are shown below, including: number of donors, Bruin Club (annual fund) giving and overall athletic giving. Without you, none of this amazing progress would be possible. We hope that you are able to continue to join us in our mission to financially support Belmont’s student-athletes during their time at Belmont as they pursue their academic and athletics goals!
