Summary

The growth in philanthropic support by source to the private black colleges is traced and compared with that for voluntary support to higher education institutions generally and to private higher education particularly. Data are obtained from the 1969-70 and 1976-77 Council for Financial Aid to Education surveys and from data collected directly from the institutions. Twenty-five of the 40 private, fully-accredited predominantly black undergraduate colleges and universities reported data for the two survey years. In corporate, foundation, religious denomination, alumni, and other group support, the percentage increases in giving to the private black colleges between 1969-70 and 1976-77 outpaced the increases experienced by private coed colleges nationally. Non-alumni individual support was the only source of private support where private coed colleges nationally had a larger percentage increase than private black colleges. At private black colleges, most of the students' families cannot afford to contribute to their children's tuition or room and board or make financial contributions to the colleges. If present trends in philanthropic support continue, the private black colleges should have a relatively stable financial future, but additional resources are needed to keep pace with rising costs and new program development.
