Voluntary Support of Education, 1980-1981.
Council for Financial Aid to Education, New York, NY.
Results of the 1980-1981 Survey of Voluntary Support of Education are presented, including a narrative summary and detailed statistical tables. Reports of voluntary support are presented for 928 institutions, and support patterns over the last decade are examined, along with patterns for a core group participating in two successive surveys. Attention is also directed to national estimates of voluntary support for higher education by source and purpose, and to economic indicators and institutional expenditures. Statistics on support are presented for specific colleges and universities and private elementary and secondary schools by state. For each institution, support in dollars is indicated for: current operations; capital purposes; six sources of support (e.g., business, alumni, foundations); bequests; annuities, life contracts, insurance; six kinds of support through the annual fund; nonalumni parent support; corporation matching gifts; and endowment market value. Summary tables of this information are also presented by type of institutions. National estimates of voluntary support of higher education indicate that: total voluntary support rose $430 million in 1980-1981 to an estimated $4.23 billion; and alumni and nonalumni individuals as groups each contributed more than $1 billion in a single year. Reports for participating institutions show that: bequests and deferred gifts declined in importance as sources of gifts from individuals; and corporate matching gifts provided a record 8 percent of total corporate support.
