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 establish a Teacher Education Resource Center, provide an education forum for current students and alumni, and send four students to participate in the North Carolina Science Teachers Conference.

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

  • Purchasing additional equipment for the teacher resource room
  • Developing and facilitating opportunities for staff and students to participate in research conferences and presentations

And, as a special thank you for a donation of $25 or more during the Founders’ Day Challenge, we will send you a Tiny Saint Benedict keychain as well as a bracelet featuring Saint Benedict’s medal.

Make a Gift to the Education Department Today!

“I majored in elementary education and had the best group of professors. Going to class didn’t seem like a chore. After graduation, I ended up teaching in a public school for 2 years, a charter school for 4 years, and a Catholic school for 1 year. Now I stay home with my son, but I’m considering homeschooling him once he’s old enough so I can continue my teaching experience!”
