Summary

Colleges and universities increasingly rely on fund raising activities as a major source of operating revenue, a process which is wrought with legal pitfalls. This document provides an overview of the legal considerations of fund raising for the alumni and development officer, focusing particularly on span of control considerations between alumni affairs and fund-raising officers and on the use of volunteers. The discussion examines the changing role of alumni affairs administrators; the process of raising money; the role of fund-raising professionals; endowments; and the increasing competition for philanthropic dollars. Also noted are the legal considerations related to such fund-raising activities, including contract law, the law of agency, compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, due process, and harassment. The paper cautions institutions on the attendant legal liabilities they must be cognizant of when alumni and others go about institutional advancement activities. (CH)
