Voluntary Support of
Education report published by CAE.
CAE's Voluntary Support of Education (VSE) survey is the authoritative national source of information on private giving to higher education and private K-12, consistently capturing about 85 percent of the total voluntary support to colleges and universities in the United States. CAE has managed the survey as a public service for over 40 years.
VSE Data Miner is a web-based service which provides subscribers - predominantly schools, colleges, and universities - interactive access to 300 data variables about private giving collected annually through the VSE Survey. (Among the data variables are: total giving; alumni participation; details on deferred and bequest giving; capital purposes and current operations gifts).
Subscribers have access to 10 years worth of survey data, and are able to examine multi-year trends in fundraising, to graph and chart data, and to research fundraising and make institution-to-institution comparisons.
Educational institutions use the service to benchmark their performance against peer institutions and analyze the results of their fundraising efforts among alumni, foundations, corporations and others.
