Determinants of Private Giving to Public Colleges and Universities
Liu, Ying
International Journal of Educational Advancement, v6 n2 p119-140 Feb 2006
This paper explores the relationship between institutional factors, policy and governance factors, and macroeconomic factors and variations in overall voluntary support and its varying sources to public colleges and universities. Study results suggest that institutions at the top of the institutional hierarchy enjoy accumulative advantage in generating voluntary support; that increased tuition level has a negative effect on corporate, foundation, and total private giving; and that different donor groups have different motivations for making gifts.
