Alumni, Faculty, Staff, Parents, and Friends:

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Indiana Academy on April 5 for One Ball State Day. The day was a great success thanks to your incredible support! Here are a few highlights:

  • The Academy raised $40,397 from 278 unique donors giving 311 gifts, all increases from 2021.
  • The Academy finished 3rd overall (out of 105 areas) on campus in total unique donors, earning $1000 in challenge money.
  • The Academy finished 2nd in total dollars raised between 7 PM-Midnight, earning $1000 in challenge money.
  • The Academy finished 3rd in total unique donors between 8 – 11 PM, earning $1000 in challenge money.
  • The Academy received donations from 35 states and 3 countries.
  • The Academy finished 1st among Teachers College departments in gifts, donors, and dollars raised.

In a few weeks, we will receive a report detailing which funds received donations. This will guide us in planning how to use these gifts to best support Indiana Academy students. Funds from donations in 2021 were used to provide additional financial aid support to students who otherwise could not attend the Academy, purchase laptops for student use, and renovate two Academy classrooms (to take place this summer). None of this is possible without your amazing support. Thank you!
