Founders Day – Education

Train the Next Generation of Teachers

Goal: 5,000

Teachers change the lives of our young people every day. They are responsible for awakening creative expression and joyful knowledge. By supporting the Education Department, you will equip the next generation of Belmont Abbey teachers to inspire and ignite the minds and hearts of their students to embracea life of love and truth.

Last Founders’ Day, generous donations helped to provide additional equipment for the Teacher Education Resource Center and facilitate opportunities for staff and students to participate in research conferences and presentations.

This year your gift, of any amount, will go toward:

  • Supporting student internship opportunities and establishing relationships with schools and dioceses beyond the local community
  • Enhancing classroom spaces with resources and equipment that model best practices in STEM and ELA teaching
  • Further developing Elementary Education Licensure and Educational Studies programs

And, as a special thank you for your donation to the Founders’ Day Challenge, we will send you novelty Belmont Abbey swag! When you give $10, you receive a glow-in-the-dark ultimate BAC frisbee. When you give $50 you receive a glow-in-the-dark ultimate BAC frisbee and a BAC canvas tote bag.

To commemorate Belmont Abbey’s 148th year, when you give a gift of $148 or more (or $13/month) you will receive four BAC black and gold leather coasters, a bag of St. Benedict hazelnut coffee and the BAC canvas tote bag.
