BACK BALL STATE UNIVERSITY AND OTHER PASSIONS
support to Ball State and other charities with one - or more - donations.
Enjoy an immediate charitable

donating appreciated stock, real estate, or other assets.
GIVE ON YOUR TIMETABLE
You can make gifts now

gift. For example, you can maximize your charitable tax deduction during
your high income working years and grant from your donor advised fund during
your retirement years.
Involve family, friends,
and/or company associates in your philanthropic mission and decision-making.
