Donations to universities reported


Inland Valley Daily Bulletin/Associated Press — Cal State San Bernardino raised $3.1 million, according to a newspaper article on college fundraising in the 2012 fiscal year.

dailybulletinThe California State University system, the largest public university system in the country that also includes CSUSB, received more than $240 million in donations for the second year in a row, according to statistics provided by the CSU. However, while individual donations were up, donations from corporations and organizations dropped.

Of the 23 campuses, San Diego State raised by far the highest amount last year with $60.5 million, followed by Cal Poly San Luis Obispo at $18.3 million and Cal State Long Beach at $17.2 million, according to the Council for Aid to Education.

Stanford University topped the list for the eighth straight year and set a record by raising more than $1 billion, according to the Council for Aid to Education’s annual college fundraising survey. The survey shows that elite institutions continue to grab a disproportionate share of donor dollars.

The other California school to make the top 10 was UC Berkeley, with $405 million.

The wire service report, published Feb. 20, 2013, also appeared in other Los Angeles News Group and Bay Area News Group newspapers.
