Fairfield University Recognized with 2018 CASE Educational Fundraising Award

Students cheering

The Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) has given Fairfield an Educational Fundraising Award for Overall Performance. This distinctive honor is given each year to superior fundraising programs at educational institutions across the country. Fairfield is among an exceptional group of 90 colleges, universities, and independent schools to receive this year's award.

Each year since 1959, CASE and its predecessor organizations have recognized exceptional development programs. The awards program recognizes overall performance and overall improvement in educational fundraising programs based on data submitted to the Voluntary Support of Education (VSE) survey. Learn more about the VSE here.

A CASE member institution is automatically eligible for the awards in overall performance and overall improvement provided it has participated in the VSE for the past three years. An expert panel of volunteer judges selects winners based on a number of factors, including: pattern of growth in total support (or adjusted total support if appropriate); evaluation of what contributed to the total support figure; overall breadth in program areas; pattern of growth in each program area; pattern of donor growth among alumni/ae donors and other individual donors; impact of the 12 largest gifts on total support; total support in relation to the alumni/ae base; and type of institution.

In selecting Overall Fundraising Performance winners, judges use the above factors to recognize institutions that show solid program growth, breadth in the base of support and other indications of a mature, well-maintained program.
