Gift Club Programs: A Survey of How 44 Institutions Raise Money.
Peirce, Susan P.
This publication addresses fund raising gift clubs and presents reprinted articles on the topic and the results of a survey of gift club programs and techniques at higher education institutions and independent elementary and secondary schools. Gift clubs are programs that motivate donors to give more generously by recognizing those who give at particular levels and grouping them with others giving at these same levels. The first section of two describes the study and its results. Development professionals at 44 institutions responded to a survey conducted in 1991 and updated in 1992 which asked for details of their gift club programs. The participants were from four-year and two-year public and private colleges and universities, and independent schools in the United States and Canada. The results are presented primarily as profiles of the gift club organizations for each of the participating institutions listing program directors (addresses and telephone numbers), gift range and club names for various levels of giving, gift type, eligibility, matching gifts, and special clubs with their categories and ranges. Section 2 offers reprints of articles on gift clubs from the periodical "Currents" and a set of articles from a newsletter "Matching Gift Notes." (JB)
