Who We Are
Discovery is a women's collaborative philanthropic group established to support projects and programs at Ball State University. Discovery members are volunteers who pool annual contributions and work with university administrators to select the projects they support.
Discovery is an organization formed to demonstrate the vital role women can play in making a difference through informed philanthropy. It was established to support projects and programs at Ball State University. Unofficially, a small group of women began meeting regularly in Indianapolis in 1998 to learn about special educational programs at Ball State University. In the spring of 2001, a planning committee of six began researching women's philanthropy organizations around the United States that support programs like those at Ball State. The research yielded information and contacts that helped form the basis for a woman's giving organization for the university. Once the plans were aligned with some of the university's most important long-range goals, Discovery was ready to go public in January 2002.
