Student Philanthropy

Q: Do you have resources about student philanthropy and how to teach students about the importance of giving before they become alumni? Examples of what has worked for other universities would be helpful too.

A: The CASE InfoCenter regularly receives questions about student philanthropy and ways to engage students in fundraising while they are still on campus. The 170+ resources in this bibliography discuss the depth and breadth of the topic—from student philanthropy groups and student giving programs, to research on the impact of student experiences on future alumni giving and engagement, to formal curriculum initiatives that teach the value of philanthropy.

In addition, CASE Affiliated Student Advancement Programs (CASE ASAP) offers programs, such as the the third annual Student Engagement & Philanthropy Month in February 2015, to help members learn about and develop campus events that encourage student philanthropy.

The CASE InfoCenter has also developed a Good Question on the culture of philanthropy to answer more general questions on how to develop a campus-wide culture of philanthropy.

This collection includes:

CASE Publications
Articles, Chapters, Reports & White Papers
News Briefs
Dissertations & Theses
