Tampa Catholic Alumnus Announces $7 Million Gift

Arnie Bellini, a 1976 graduate of Tampa Catholic High School, in cooperation with his family and school administrators, has announced a $7 million gift to his alma mater. The goal of the gift is to equip students with skills that support the modernization of arts and digital education to create leaders for the 21st century workforce.

It is the single largest gift to a Catholic school in Florida history and one of the largest to any Florida school.

Bellini, the former CEO of ConnectWise, sold his company earlier this year to a Silicon Valley private equity firm. He made the announcement in the Tampa Catholic High School gymnasium to much fanfare with students, parents, alumni and faculty present.

”Our family hopes this will inspire other donors to help us make innovative education a differentiator in Tampa so we can grow talent and keep talent right here and fill the gap where so many cuts are being made in education budgets,” Bellini said.

“For more than 50 years, Tampa Catholic has built upon our traditions of faith, excellence and family by offering a superior high school experience to all our students,” said Robert Lees, Tampa Catholic Principal. “Mr. Bellini’s gift will transform the face of education at Tampa Catholic and impact the entire community for generations to come. His generosity is a wonderful example of leadership that we hope others will follow.”
