Putting Our Students First

Give Online Now Support from alumni and friends like you helps us provide our students with a distinctive education, challenging programs, and life-changing opportunities that prepare them to succeed and make a difference in communities across the nation and around the world.

With a difficult economy and reductions in state funding, your gift matters now more than ever. Check to see if your company matches employee donations to educational institutions.

For more information on matching gifts, contact matchinggift@bsu.edu.

Our students have their own stories about the difference a scholarship made to them, but you will find three common themes:

  • Scholarships make their education at their first-choice university—Ball State—possible.
  • Scholarships reward their hard work and academic achievement.
  • Scholarships help them pursue opportunities to do philanthropic work or advance their career.

Ball State also benefits when you support scholarships. A generous scholarship offer helps us recruit the brightest students and allows us to be competitive among the other institutions top-notch students can choose. Once here, these curious students contribute to a world-class learning environment.

The generosity of alumni and friends also helps us attract the best professors, improve our vibrant campus, establish more immersive learning experiences, and enhance the university.

You can contribute to the Ball State Fund—to be used for the greatest needs of the university, or you can designate your gift to areas, programs, and projects of your choice. Your gift will help us continue to put our students first. We appreciate your generous support.
