How a culture of philanthropy impacts all of us

Document Type


Publication Date



As our institutions come to grips with the reality of tight budgets, we all face new challenges to our work, teams and pocketbooks. How do two colleges with relatively small endowments compete for talent, attract top students, and maintain our sense of community? Our presentation offers another way of thinking about the roles staff, faculty and students play – one that embraces and encourages philanthropic giving. We will describe why donors say they give to CSB and SJU, how the two Institutional Advancement offices work, and what community members can do to support a culture of donor engagement that helps all areas of campus.
