About this study
This report presents results from the 2007-08 annual Ross-CASE
Survey of Gifts and Costs of Voluntary Giving to Higher Education
Institutions in the UK. You can read the findings
The Ross-CASE series of surveys are the only accurate source of information on the long-term health of philanthropic funding in the Higher Education sector.
The first survey in the series was carried out in 2001-02 and NatCen has run the survey since 2006-07. The Ross-CASE survey is commissioned by the Ross Group and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).
Potential policy impact
The government uses this survey to assess the impact of its three-year £200 million matched-funding scheme. By matching philanthropic donations to Universities in England, the government hopes to boost the fundraising performance of the Higher Education sector.
Every Higher Education institution in the UK was invited to complete a questionnaire which they could download from our dedicated website.
