CASE Global Reporting Standards for Schools
The CASE Global Reporting Standards and the DASL Partnership
The CASE Global Reporting Standards are a common set of standards, guidelines, and definitions for reporting the results of educational philanthropy activities at schools, colleges, and universities across the globe. CASE’s Reporting Standards have set the bar for educational fundraising since their first publishing in 1982 and have evolved to reflect changes in the profession. The CASE Global Reporting Standards will be reflected in the work of CASE-DASL partnership and across all CASE surveys and reports.
Available in print or online, the Standards provide important guidance around gift counting, funds received, new funds committed, and donor control and influence.

Why are the CASE Global Reporting Standards Important to You?
Data reveals secrets and tells stories. It enables benchmarking, so that institutions can review their progress and chart productive ways forward. By expanding our data sharing on a global scale, we can find communities of similar institutions more easily–and can find models and inspiration.
CASE is proud to be the leader tracking voluntary support while also providing community-derived foundations from which the advancement profession operates. The CASE Global Reporting Standards will give our members the opportunity to benchmark with their peers across the globe providing more useful observations and insights than ever before.
For me the Global Reporting Standards are important because they give us a framework, guiderails to help us to develop this important work within our own institutions and according to our own contexts.
