Kelsey Kelly

While Kelsey is a proud Purdue University graduate, she also hails from a family that includes four consecutive generations of Cardinals. It all started with her great-grandmother Mildred Lee, who graduated from Ball State when it was called the Indiana State Normal School.

Kelsey’s career with Ball State University began in 2015. Prior to that, she worked at United Way of Central Indiana and served in many roles before transitioning to a leadership position at a small non-profit focused on leadership development. She has had the opportunity to work in all areas of fundraising throughout her career and earned her Certified Fund Raising Executive credential in 2014. Her parents taught her from a young age the importance of giving back and that always stuck with her. She loves to be able to work with donors and match their passions and affinity to support our students, campus and community.

If she’s not at work, you are likely to catch her on a boat somewhere with her three children, her husband, and their dog, a Wheaten terrier named Mackey (once a Boilermaker always a Boilermaker).
