VSE Survey

The Voluntary Support of Education (VSE) survey is the authoritative North American source of data on charitable giving to higher education and private K-12 institutions.

Each year, CASE gathers data about charitable support of higher education and precollege institutions via its VSE survey.

The survey yields hundreds of variables related to fundraising in public and private colleges and universities and a small number of precollege institutions. CASE, beginning in 2018, manages the survey, having acquired it from CAE—which had managed it beginning in 1957.

CASE encourages any institution that wishes to participate to supply data. The data are used to estimate national trends and for benchmarking by individual institutions.
