We have surpassed our stretch goal of $7,500!
We are thankful and grateful to each person who has donated to date. We want to build upon this momentum and continue our crowdfunding event so more students can receive money for books.
Our next goal is to reach $8,500 before October 31. Please share this update with those who've yet to donate to this worthy cause. Again, no amount is too little or too large.
We have every confidence that we'll reach this next fundraising milestone! Thank you.
The Ball State Black Alumni Constituent Society believes in giving back. Over the past seven years, we have awarded 93 students with book scholarships. The scholarship recipients have come from various economic backgrounds and they have overcome many hardships to pursue their education at Ball State. With the intersection of financial crises and the COVID-19 pandemic, we are more committed than ever to support Black students as they pursue their academic goals and their dream of graduating from Ball State University.
Many of our book scholarship recipients come from low-income, single-parent households. Some students grow up without either parent in the home. Most are first-generation college students. While they are very proud and grateful to be able to attend Ball State, their main concerns are paying for books and having the financial means to finish college. With your financial support, Black students will be able to stress less about their ability to afford textbooks. They will know that Black Alumni and friends and family of Black Alumni are interested in their education as well as their future.
As this fundraising campaign gets underway, we want you to know that no donation will be considered too small or too large. What’s important is that you give your best donation.
There are several giving levels for your financial ability. So please give today. On behalf of our future book scholarship recipients, we thank you for your generous support.
