A Longitudinal Examination of the Relationship of Selected Institutional Variables to Community College Foundation Revenue
Patterson, Vandiver L.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Texas A&M University - Commerce
The primary purpose of this study was to examine the annual revenue received by United States public community college foundations from 2008-2009 in relation to selected variables associated in the literature with successful foundation performance. This study also attempted to collect longitudinal data by replicating and expanding upon a similar study conducted by Dr. Sharon McEntee Carrier a decade earlier. Data were collected through the web service, "Survey Monkey," and the researcher used the statistical analysis software package Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS version 15) to analyze survey responses. Linear regression analysis was used to collect descriptive statistics that described the frequencies, central tendencies, and distribution of the data. The researcher also used linear regression and analysis of variances (ANOVA) to study the relationship between revenue gained in connection with private giving and college foundation operations for fiscal year 2008--2009, the degree to which the college president, chief resource development officer, and foundation board members were rated as playing a critical role in the foundation's operation, the degree to which meeting institutional strategic goals was rated as an important factor in evaluating the foundation's operation, the institution's geographic location, size (based on FTE enrollment), size of endowment, and organizational structure. The explanatory variables, foundation operations, the degree to which the chief development officer was rated concerning his or her role in the foundation's operation, location, size, endowment, and the Chief Development Officer's perception of how his or her efforts were appreciated by the institution he or she serves were found to be statistically significant. The effect size for the variable foundation's operating budget was moderate. A large effect size was noted for the variable, the degree to which the chief development officer was rated concerning his or her role in the foundation's operation. A moderate effect size was noted for the variable location. The effect size for the variable institution size was small while the effect size for foundation endowment was moderate. A moderate effect size was also noted for the variable, Chief Development Officer's perception of how his or her efforts were appreciated by the institution they serve.
