McCain, J. Charles
A national survey of more than 1,l00 two-year colleges was conducted to determine current trends in obtaining outside financial support. Areas focused on were financial resource development methods, staff organization and administrative support for development, and resource development efforts. A response rate of 73% was achieved. Results indicated: (1) 64.1% of the two-year colleges were engaged in some form of resource development; (2) approximately half of the colleges did not devote a full-time position to the development effort; (3) private schools utilized more personnel in development than did public schools; (4) nearly one-third of the colleges with development programs received endowments; (5) multi-campus colleges emphasized development more than single-campus colleges; (6) alumni programs were in the greatest need of development/improvement; and (7) federal grants contributed to public two-year college development more than any other source, while in the private sector, federal grants were surpassed by gifts from individuals, alumni, trustees, and churches.
