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.
