One promising sign that Americans are moving forward from the 2008 economic recession comes from a recent report on college giving from the Council for Aid to Education. In 2011, universities raised more than $30 billion, nearly reaching the 2008 high of $31.6 billion. After nearly two years of stalled support, the nation’s top universities reached out to alumni, primarily through capital campaigns. It paid off, reaching a 13 percent increase from 2010. Overall, half of the 1,009 colleges surveyed showed a marked increase in donations in 2011.

No matter where you attended college, remember your alma mater this year by setting up a donor-advised fund at the Center for Arab American Philanthropy. We help you support your university through direct donations or scholarship funds, while also being recognized as an Arab American philanthropist.
