From gifts of blankets, chickens, and candles to multimillion-dollar gifts and billion-dollar campaigns, voluntary support of American higher education has been part of the American ethos since the founding of the colonial colleges. Peter Dobkin Hall in 1992 noted that "no single force is more responsible for the emergence of the modern university in America than giving by individuals and foundations." Institutions are turning to private giving to meet budgetary demands. This book provides a review of the philanthropy and fundraising literature and addresses the impact of philanthropy on American higher education, the theoretical under-pinnings and motivations for voluntary support, and a comprehensive look at the mechanics of fundraising.

Winner of the Association of Fundraising Professionals 2014 Skystone Partners Research Prize in Philanthropy and Fundraising Traditionally, institutions have relied on wealthy White men to reach their fundraising goals. But as state investment in public higher education lessens and institutions look to philanthropy to move from excellence to eminence, advancement officers continually need to engage all populations, including many that have historically been excluded from fundraising strategies. Based on theory, research, and past practice, Expanding the Donor Base in Higher Education explores how colleges and universities can build culturally sensitive fundraising and engagement strategies. This edited book presents emerging research on different communities that have not traditionally been approached for fundraising—including Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) alumni, African Americans, Latinos, graduate students, young alumni, women, and faculty donors. Chapters discuss and analyze successful programs and provide practical suggestions and strategies to create and implement fundraising programs that engage these new donor populations. Expanding the Donor Base in Higher Education is an essential resource for any institution looking to expand their pool of donors and cultivate a more philanthropic mindset among alumni and students.

Winner of the 2014 CASE Warwick Award for Outstanding Research on Alumni Relations and Institutional Advancement Changing demographics are having a substantial impact on college and university student populations. In order to continue garnering funds and supporting their higher education institutions, development offices and individual fundraisers need to learn more about alumni of color. To help move fundraising staff away from a "one size fits all" approach, Engaging Diverse College Alumni provides a comprehensive overview of philanthropy in diverse cultures. Unlike other works on fundraising within communities of color, this book focuses specifically on college and university alumni and offers concrete suggestions for engaging these populations, including best practices as well as approaches to avoid. This practical guide includes: A Comprehensive Overview of Diverse Cultures—use of secondary sources, interviews, and quantitative data to explore the history, motivations, and trends of Latino, African American, Native American, and Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. Practical Recommendations—data-based recommendations and examples integrated throughout the chapters, including "Strategies at a Glance" for quick reference. Best Practices and Innovative Approaches—interviews with advancement staff and alumni of color, an entire chapter outlining successful innovative fundraising programs, and a chapter on common pitfalls to avoid. Both newcomers and seasoned fundraising professionals will find this book to be a compelling and in-depth guide to engaging diverse college alumni.
