Campaign Overview

Honoring the success and blessings of the last 125 years, we challenge ourselves to do even more towards our purpose of helping students develop their talents and skills to meet the world’s needs, and to serve even more students with all that Belmont has to offer. The challenge Belmont must accept is to ensure we are prepared to offer and sustain what our students deserve and expect from our institution—world-class facilities, innovation and entrepreneurial thinking, meaningful scholarship support, the best faculty, dynamic and relevant programs and an environment that fosters creative thought in an undeniably Christian environment.

In response to this challenge, Belmont University has announced its largest, most extensive fundraising campaign in the institution’s 126-year history. Centered on the theme “We Believe” and intended to raise and invest $300 million, the campaign builds on the momentum garnered through Belmont’s quasquicentennial anniversary and focuses attention on five areas that are key to the University’s Vision 2020 strategic priorities, including scholarships, faculty support and missions.

The $300 million campaign will include total money raised through December 31, 2020. In addition to private and corporate giving, the University will match endowment gifts between $25,000 and $1.5 million with unrestricted income to double the donor’s impact. Thanks to strong economic management and cost control, Belmont is able to partner with supporters to invest in the nonprofit institution’s future.
