The CASE Library has developed this resource collection on fundraising during a crisis or time of major change. It compiles resources on fundraising during the COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic as well as fundraising following economic recessions, disasters, institutional scandals, and other major events. It includes articles and books on how institutions can respond to crises and how they can become more resilient for the future.
These ethical principles go hand-in-hand with the expectation that educational fundraising professionals are expected to comply with the letter and the spirit of all laws relevant to charitable giving.
The CASE Library maintains this collection of online samples for all CASE members. Samples include best practices from CASE award winners, crisis communications exercises, and crisis communications and emergency response plans.
Based on responses to the annual Voluntary Support of Education survey, CASE estimates that colleges and universities in the U.S. raised $49.60 billion during the 2019 academic fiscal year, 6.1% more than in 2018 and the highest amount ever raised.
The Library has created this collection to support advancement professionals who work with volunteers. It includes information on recruiting, hiring, managing, evaluating, and stewarding volunteers. It also offers resources on volunteers working in specific functions, such as admissions, alumni relations, fundraising, and government relations.
