Corporate Support of Higher Education, 1977.
Council for Financial Aid to Education, New York, NY.
Some of the results of the fourth Annual Survey of Corporate Contributions are presented in this report on corporate support of higher education for 1977. Usable questionnaires were returned by 816 companies. A discussion of national trends considers corporate support of higher education vs. college and university expenditures, increased student enrollment, increased expenditures per student, the impact of inflation, and prospects for future declines in expenditures per student. Survey findings concern the following: contributions in relation to financial data, the functioning of company foundations, educational support by size of company, educational support by marketing area, and educational support by purpose. It is shown that capital grants declined in importance in 1977 and that support through matching gifts are growing. The purposes of educational support and dollar amounts and the purposes of educational support by industry by total dollar amounts and percentage distributions are included. The problem of measuring corporate contributions is discussed, and information about the survey report (including definitions and biases) is presented. (SW)
