Parents Annual Fund

Partner with the Parents Advisory Council

Parents Annual Fund

The Ball State Parents Advisory Council is proud of its partnership with the University to help even more students fly. We're fortunate to have so many members of Cardinal nation support our children. Last academic year, alumni, friends, parents, corporations, foundations and others committed more than $33 million to Ball State. We are grateful for private support as it helps offset what tuition and fees can’t cover.



Gifts to the Parents Annual Fund supports many campus-wide programs, including:

  • The Jack Beyerl Student Emergency Aid Fund, which provides financial assistance to Ball State student who experience accidents, illnesses, financial hardships, or other emergency situations that jeopardize their education
  • Late Nite, a popular weekend activities program that offers students safe and alcohol-free entertainment and ways to spend their free time away from their studies
  • University scholarships, which are offered to students who have not received other private scholarships but who have demonstrated leadership abilities
