Leaders & Loyals logo

The Ball State University Foundation recognizes the generous support of those who lead by example.

Gifts from alumni and friends are a vote of confidence in what the university has been, what it is today, and what it will become. Our students are transforming from learners into impactful leaders who will improve the quality of life for all. Leaders & Loyals make this possible through their continued investment in a Ball State education.

Philanthropy fueled Ball State’s promising beginnings, and decades of benefactors have built this institution and kept the university strong. Our Leaders & Loyals desire to see students flourish and impact not only the community and state—but also the world.


Alumni and friends who meet one or more of the following criteria during the July 1–June 30 fiscal year will be welcomed into Leaders & Loyals, a program that acknowledges Ball State’s most steadfast supporters:

  • consecutive year donors, including the current fiscal year.
  • monthly or quarterly recurring donors who give via credit card or payroll deduction.
  • donors who make an annual commitments of $1,000 or more.
