Hargis, W. Douglas; Blocker, Clyde E.
Data collected in 1960-63 on private philanthropic support to junior colleges are compared with data collected in 1968-71. Questionnaires were mailed during 1968-71 to 1,091 junior colleges in the United States; 650 schools responded with usable data. Of these schools, 546 were publicly supported, 52 were independent, and 52 were church-related. Over the period of the study, 1968-71, the 546 public colleges received $139,967,100 in philanthropic funds, averaging $256,350 per school for the three-year period and a yearly average income of $85,450. The 52 independent and 52 church-related colleges collectively reported receiving $131,077,800 over the same three-year period; their average income was $1,242,416 and $1,278,312, respectively; and their annual income was $414,139 for independent institutions and $426,104 for church-related colleges. As a total group, the 650 colleges reported $271,044,900 income from philanthropy, which represents a 328% increase over the funds reported in the 1960-63 study. The study data are presented in 57 tables. In the report appendix, the purpose of the study, definition of terms, and a copy of the questionnaire used are provided. (DB)
