Increasing Efficiency in Academia: The Use of a Weaning Model in Fundraising
Maniaci, Vincent M.; Poole, Rob
International Journal of Educational Advancement, v5 n2 p131-141 Jan 2005
The authors discuss a method to increase institutional efficiency and financial stability through strategic planning, by gradually reallocating funds raised for annual operations to quasi-endowment over a period of years using a weaning model. The weaning model is offered as a tactic to address issues of financial vulnerability developed in earlier studies by Maniaci and Poole.
