Factors Associated with Gift Income in Public Research and Doctoral Granting Institutions.
Woods, Janet L.
Information is presented on a study to determine which of several institutional characteristics are associated most closely with an institution's gift income and to determine which fund raising practices and programs are utilized in selected institutions. The study focused on public institutions with Carnegie classifications of Research I and II (RI and RII) and Doctoral Granting I and II (DGI and DGII). Results showed that factors associated with federal and state support plus an institution's endowment market value were most significantly related to an institution's gift income index. Three variables were significantly related to the gift income index for all the institutions (number of alumni, federal research and development, and educational and general expenditures). Fourteen appendices are: listing of all RI and RII institutions; listing of all DGI and DGII institutions; institutions identified in this study per classification; summary of data collection resources; institutional fund raising questionnaire; cover letter; variables and units of measure; strength of relationship guideline; generalized regression equation; a regression equation computation for Auburn University; computer printout of regression equation results for Auburn University; correlation coefficients for all gift income sources; correlation coefficients for all institutional variables; and results for all multiple regression equations.
