Giving at Highest Recorded Level
Three Institutions Receive Nine‐Figure Gifts

Charitable contributions to colleges and universities in the United States increased nine percent in 2013, according to the Voluntary Support of Education (VSE) survey conducted by 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.
