Sometimes, the key to solving an old problem is a fresh perspective. This was the case for the annual fund for The Catholic University of America (CUA), which underwent a transformation that nearly doubled the fund between 2004 and 2008. In 2004-05, the annual giving program at CUA raised $454,789 in unrestricted gifts from 1,760 donors. By 2009-10, the program generated $901,844 from 3,490 donors. Peak performance occurred in 2007-08, with $952,212 raised, followed by a slight dip in 2008-09, a result of the downturn in the U.S. economy. Today, growth continues despite the economy. The authors discuss how volunteer board members take annual giving to the next level at Catholic University.
