"2020 National Young Alumni Survey"

Read this groundbreaking study about the attitudes and expectations of young alumni toward philanthropy, taken from a study of 40,000 respondents

Young alumni make up more than 30 percent of the current alumni base in higher education. Increasing their engagement is critical to the future of higher education philanthropy, especially as alumni participation continues to decline and institutions need to build a foundation for their next generation of supporters.

But how do young alumni feel about supporting their alma mater? What are the attitudes, interests, and behaviors of young alumni toward philanthropy? What causes and organizations do they have the most interest in supporting?

This study from RNL and the Schuler Education Foundation surveyed 40,000 young alumni at 36 campuses about their motivation and behaviors in supporting philanthropic causes. Read the report to explore findings such as:

  • How many young alumni volunteer or donate, and how frequently.
  • The top causes or organizations to which they donate or volunteer.
  • How many feel connected to their alma mater and how that connection influences giving.
  • The impact of student debt on young alumni giving.

This report is ideal for any higher education fundraisers looking to increase engagement with young alumni and harness their support for your institution.
