Alumni giving reaches highest mark in school history

By Sean Harvey ’10

The alumni giving rate at Lynn University reached its highest mark ever this past fiscal year with a giving rate of 7.3 percent – up more than 3 percent from the prior year.

This rate is even more impressive considering that there was a 17.8 percent decline in giving by individuals to colleges and universities for the same time period according to the Council for Aid to Education. With the economy taking a turn for the worse in recent years, the 17.8 percent decline was expected, which is why it means so much to Lynn University that our alumni were so generous.

Lisa Miller, director of annual programs, said, “We’ve come a long way with alumni giving over the last several years. Due to the hard work of many Lynn staff, our alumni are more engaged in a variety of ways and as a result are making annual gifts. We couldn’t be more thrilled.”

Lynn University thanks the alumni for their gifts and we look forward to another successful year ahead.
