Development Office wins CASE Award
Yale’s Office of Development has received a 2013 Educational Fundraising Award from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).
The award recognizes superior fundraising programs at CASE member institutions across the country. Institutions do not apply for the award; the honor is based on data submitted to the Council for Aid to Education’s Voluntary Support of Education survey, a national source of data on charitable giving to higher education and private K-12 institutions.
A panel of judges select winners based on such factors as the pattern of growth in total support; overall breadth in program areas; pattern of growth in each program area; and pattern of donor growth among alumni and other individual donors, among other accomplishments.
Yale was honored for “Overall Performance” in the Private Research/Doctoral Institutions category. This is the second year in a row that the Development Office has received that distinction.
All told, 412 colleges and universities were considered for the 2013 awards, and 68 higher education institutions were honored — 35 in “Overall Performance” and 33 in “Overall Improvement.”
