Summary

This study examined whether alumni who were resident assistants (RAs) gave more to the institution than did alumni who were not RAs. This information was deemed significant for two reasons: (1) contributions from graduates are increasingly important sources of funds for colleges and universities; (2) information on why alumni contribute is important for future fund-raising efforts. Data were obtained from a random sample of 300 alumni who had graduated between 1975 and 1990 from a private university in Alabama; the data set included 10 alumni from each year who had been RAs and 10 from each year who had not been RAs. Data collected on RAs indicated that their demographic profile included the following characteristics: they were non-donors to the university, residents of Alabama, non-participants in alumni activities, female, Baptist, education majors, married, and had two children. For those former RAs who did provide contributions, the average gift size was $103, with a range of $10 to $2,500. It was also found that individuals who were RAs graduated in an average of 4.07 years, compared to 4.103 years for non-RAs. Involvement by RAs in giving and volunteering were both determined to be low, but positive. (Contains 17 references.) (MDM)
