Every two years, CASE surveys higher education institutions in the United States and Canada for the latest statistics and trends in capital campaigns. The results are analyzed and published in the CASE Campaign Report, which includes campaign stats and key ratios with which to standardize campaign goals by size of institution.
The standards make it possible for CASE to collect meaningful national data and make valid institution-to-institution comparisons. In addition to following the standards for reporting to the CASE campaign survey, many institutions follow them voluntarily as they account for their own campaign fundraising progress.
Use of the CASE Reporting Standards and Management Guidelines will also expedite an institution's preparation of its data for the annual Voluntary Support of Education survey, the definitive national source of annual educational giving information. CASE is a sponsor of the VSE survey, which is produced by the Council for Aid to Education.
