United in Flight - Invest, Impact & Inspire

Thank you for your unwavering support of our Ball State student-athletes. Breaking records in the classroom, making history on the field, and uniting a community during these unprecedented times shows just what we can accomplish TOGETHER. The impact your generosity has on the experience of our student-athletes is truly inspiring, and we continue to need you now more than ever. 

You can make a difference in the lives of our 450 student athletes and spirit squad members, by helping us provide them with the vision they need to become proud graduates of Ball State and the tools necessary to leave a championship legacy. We aspire to even greater and sustained success, and with your help we can be United in Flight!

One Ball State Day is a tradition that inspires and unites our prestigious university and growing community. On this memorable day, be a champion for all Cardinals. Wear your cardinal and white proudly and post your pride on social media allowing others to see how “We Fly Together” we can place our students on a trajectory for exceptional achievement, both here at Ball State and beyond. Join us on this continued journey.
