Voluntary Support of Education 1974-75.
Council for Financial Aid to Education, New York, NY.
This is the 16th in a series of studies in educational philanthropy conducted by the Council for Financial Aid to Education since 1954-55. Roughly 1,000 institutions of higher education, both public and private, and 300 independent schools supplied the figures on which this report is based. This survey provides information on the voluntary financial support of educational institutions by source, purpose, and type of institution. Among the highlights of the report are that total support was down from 1973-74; support of private institutions was down although support was up for public institutions; support from individuals and foundations were both down; and, although the support for current operations was up 5 percent over 1973-74, giving for capital purposes, including endowment, was down by more than 15 percent. An appendix contains summary tables by class of institution. (Author/IRT)
