Giving to Educational Institutions Increased 5.4 Percent in 2013-14
Donations to U.S. educational institutions grew an estimated 5.4 percent during the academic year that ended June 30, 2014, a survey by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education finds.
Based on a survey of senior fundraising professionals at more than 1700 member institutions, including four-year public and private colleges and universities, community colleges, and private, independent schools nationwide, the CASE Fundraising Index found that fundraisers' estimates for giving to their institutions were up an average of 5.4 percent on a year-over-year basis — slightly above the 5.3 percent growth they had predicted at the beginning of the 2013-14 academic year. Survey respondents also expect growth to remain steady at 5.4 percent for the current academic year.
Fundraisers at four-year colleges and universities and their counterparts at two-year colleges are even more optimistic about the 2014-15 academic year, predicting a 5.7 percent and 5.5 percent increase in giving, respectively. Meanwhile, fundraising professionals at independent elementary and secondary schools estimate 5.9 percent growth for the 2013-14 academic year but were more pessimistic about 2014-15, predicting that growth might slow to an average of 4.7 percent. The 20-year average for year-over-year growth in actual giving is 5.9 percent.
"The CFI results indicate that giving to education continues to grow, and that education is a top priority for many donors," said CASE president John Lippincott. "Overall, fundraisers at educational institutions are optimistic that giving will remain on a steady course during the next 12 months."

Alliance Launched to Maximize Mobile Giving to Charities
The Mobile Giving Foundation has announced a joint initiative with the American Red Cross, the American Cancer Society, World Vision, the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, and United Way Worldwide to maximize the benefits of mobile technology for charities.
With support from MGF and in cooperation with the BBB Wise Giving Alliance and the American Society of Association Executives, the Mobile Giving Alliance will work to expand and improve access to mobile networks and platforms for charitable organizations and enhance the functionality, efficiency, and long-term sustainability of mobile technology for the sector. The alliance also will work to ensure donor trust and NPO accountability as mobile solutions for social good evolve.
"Through the collaborative effort amongst the Mobile Giving Alliance founding partners, the nonprofit sector can have a strong voice in determining how mobile develops to best meet the needs of mission awareness, donor acquisition, engagement, and payments," said John Graham, board chairman of the Mobile Giving Foundation and ceo of ASAE.
"We see mobile as the future of digital philanthropy," said José Carbonell, senior vice president of marketing and communications at the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, "and look forward to working with wireless operators and mobile platforms to create the best experience for people who want to support UNICEF's lifesaving work for children."
