Berea Patrons was started last year to spread awareness of the importance of giving through the student body back to Berea College. Not only do Patrons learn the importance of giving, but the need for stewardship back to donors who graciously gave in order for them to attend Berea College. Students must give at least $5.00 per year (July 1st-June 30th) to be considered a part of the Berea Patrons Program. This money goes to cover the tuition gap which is approximately $2,500 per student. The goal of the Berea Patrons this year is to raise four student scholarships which will total $10,000 dollars.
