Day of Beneficence

Day of Beneficence on May 20 combines two signature events: Day of Beneficence, a nationwide alumni community service day, and Thank a Donor Day, a thank you note writing campaign.

Last year, more than 270 Ball State alumni participated in Day of Beneficence, serving a combined 900 hours through 46 projects. Thank a Donor Day generated more than 1,000 personal thank you notes that were sent to donors.

Due to the pandemic health crisis, Day of Beneficence 2020 will go virtual, but it will be just as impactful.

How to Participate on May 20:

Acts of Kindness: Share what you are doing to make a difference in your own backyard using #KindCardinals. From making your neighborhood beautiful, to honoring your hometown heroes, to doing good deeds, Ball State’s community impact will be felt nationwide. We will re-post your photos, videos, and experiences on our social media platforms.

Thank a Ball State Donor: Thousands of generous donors have made an investment in our students and have helped build the Ball State we all love. You can honor an anonymous donor by writing a virtual note of appreciation. We will share your note with one of our wonderful donors.
