COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES RAISE $33.80 BILLION IN 2013
Giving at Highest Recorded Level
Three Institutions Receive 9‐Figure Gifts
Charitable contributions to colleges and universities in the United States increased 9 percent in 2013, according to the Voluntary Support of Education (VSE) survey, conducted by the Council for Aid to Education (CAE). At $33.80 billion, the total is the highest recorded in the history of the survey. In 2009, giving fell from $31.60 billion, which was then the historical high point, to $27.85 billion. Giving levels gradually recovered from that loss until reaching this year’s high.
