November 2013 fundraising results

The following are highlights based on the tables below and major initiatives in the month of November.

Initiative Campaign (2006-2016)

  • Campaign donations now total $373.5M (75%) against the $500M goal
  • Gift Planning expectancies (the estimated value of future bequest, insurance, and registered account and trust proceeds confirmed by donors) now total $92.3M (92%) against a separate $100M campaign goal

Fiscal Year (May 2013- April 2014)

  • Donations this Fiscal Year total $30.9M – an increase of $4.4M from the October total of $26.5M
  • The fiscal goal for May 2013 – April 2014 is $60M
  • 5 gifts of $100K+ accounted for $2.6M of the $4.4M in donations received in November
  • 28 gifts of $100K+ account for $23.7M of the $30.9M donated this Fiscal Year – these figures support our continued emphasis on principal ($5M+) and major gifts ($100K+)

Number of Donors

Fiscal Year 2013-14 (to Nov 30):

  • Alumni Donors – 5,206                                                                                            
  • Total Donors –    7,216

Fiscal Year 2012-13 (to Nov 30):

  • Alumni Donors –  5,692
  • Total Donors –     7,226

Decrease of 8.5% in Alumni Donors, decrease of 0.1% in Total Donors from 2012-13 to 2013-14.

Overview of Annual Giving Program

  • Annual Giving dollars total $3.6M to date this Fiscal Year; this is a 17% increase over last Fiscal Year.
  • Revenue is up significantly as a result of increased average gift. Parents and friends are giving generously, and alumni donors are also giving more money and more often.
  • We have 486 fewer alumni donors than we did at this time last year. Current counts are more typical for this time of year based on a 5 year trend (average alumni donor count for end of November is 5,096).
  • It is not uncommon to see an increase in donors with the launch of Campaign. We did see a drop in response to our September 2013 appeals compared to September 2012 (which coincided with Launch). However, we are seeing an increased response to our November appeals over last year. Momentum is being gained as we head into our final appeal before calendar year-end.

Upcoming Activity:

  • All donors who had given last year by this time will be called personally by the end of calendar year.
  • All alumni who attended Homecoming (and are part of the Annual Appeal calling pool) are being identified for personal calls before end of calendar year.
  • All donors through the call centre are receiving a personal video thank you message from their student caller. We are receiving very positive feedback about this immediate gift stewardship and recognition.
