General Information

The Employee Emergency Fund is a fund conceived by caring faculty and staff for the sole purpose of assisting other faculty and staff in times of financial crisis. The Fund was established during One Ball State Day in April of 2022. 

This fund was initiated to provide financial support for Ball State employees in need of temporary emergency assistance caused by a specific event resulting in loss of housing. 


You must:

  • Be a current Ball State Employee
  • Have a temporary financial hardship because of an emergency situation

A temporary financial hardship is one caused by a specific event such as but not limited to:

  • Fire
  • Natural disaster
  • Other factors resulting in the loss of housing

How to apply

To apply, submit your request using this online application.  If you do not have access to the application, you may call the HR Solutions Center at (765) 285-1834 for assistance.

Given the limited amount of funds, all requests can’t be approved even though there may be a clear need for assistance. This fund may be insufficient in the case of widespread disasters or community crises. 

What to Expect

Once you complete the application, the Employee Emergency Fund Committee will review the information and you will be notified of the decision.

Contribute to the Employee Emergency Fund
