Private Giving to Colleges Is up, but Fewer Alumni Make Donations
Strout, Erin
Chronicle of Higher Education, v52 n25 pA27-A29 Feb 2006
Colleges in the US raised a collective US$25.6-billion in private donations during the 2005 fiscal year, which is a 4.9% increase from the previous year, but the proportion of alumni who made gifts fell again. The wealth was also not evenly distributed, with the increase in giving to just the top ten institutions accounting for half of the total growth in higher-education donations in 2005.
