Staff1 Comment

Bringing together profiles of various donors and Berea College supporters, this issue reveals the interest and motivation that lead so many generous persons to invest in the College’s mission. For some, it is gratitude and giving back; for others, commitment to education as the engine of social mobility; and for still others, it is service to those less fortunate. In this way, the donors of today mirror those of earlier generations and echo the compelling story of our founding by men and women of principle, determination, and courage. You can think of these individual profiles as new chapters in the Berea story. As they come to life for you, please be reminded that it is only through the combined philanthropic efforts of thousands of devoted supporters that Berea College is able to continue and advance its mission of investing in lives of great promise.

  1. I think your report is both unique and impressive. It is so much more interesting than the many I’ve seen and as a student, teacher and administrator at colleges. It makes me want to give MORE! I’m very fond of Berea and it’s purpose AND the way the students have a role in its success.
