Voluntary Support of Education 1975-76.
Council for Financial Aid to Education, New York, NY.
This is the 17th 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 the total voluntary support of all institutions of higher education is up sharply over 1974-75, that all classes of colleges and universities reported increased support, that alumni support rose twice as much as support from any other source, that support for capital purposes was more than double that for current operations, and that increased bequests accounted for half the dollar rise in support from individual donors. Support for private elementary and secondary schools also rose sharply over the previous year. An appendix contains summary tables by class of institution. (Author/IRT)
