Investigates the relationship between athletic success and alumni contributions at 58 major U.S. universities. Football and basketball records over 10 years were correlated with the average contributions from each solicited alumnus and the per capita gifts to annual funds. Team successes in both sports correlated highly with alumni generosity. (AM)
