According the 2014 CASE Student Philanthropy Survey, most institutions are making financial allocations to student advancement, but the monetary amounts tend to be small. In fact, the amount allotted to student philanthropy is only pennies per student for many institutions. The survey findings also illustrate that there is a payoff through sustained engagement. The more an institution spends on student philanthropy per enrollee, the more effective the fundraising performance. So why do most intuitions invest so little in student advancement?

This webinar takes a strategic look at the return on investment of student advancement. Listen as Dan Nugent discusses the critical role of student advancement—not only in alumni giving but also, alumni engagement. Institutions, schools and colleges must invest in acquisition engagement today verses acquisition fundraising tomorrow. The latter will cost you more.
