Looking at a report posted by NACUBO, 22% is 22%...good progress being made there but still very low.

 

http://www.nacubo.org/Business_and_Policy_Areas/Endowment_Management.html

 

 

615 University at Albany Foundation NY

2014 - 49,522(million)

2013 - 40,522

22.2% increase from 2013 to 2014

 

StonyBrook at 214mil up from 180mil or 19%

Binghamton at 87mil up from 76 or 13%

Buffalo is LOADED at 624mil up from 554mil or 12%

 

I know there are endowments that are restricted and those that are not...

Our endowment needs to be bigger -- too bad the Nano split didn't have some unrestricted funds to go with it. On the other hand if they buy us a law school and medical school, well, all can be forgiven.

 

The one year return on the S&P500 was 17%. I'm not sure how it's invested, but I'm pretty confident it doesn't sit in a money market...

 

I would encourage everyone on this board to give --

 

It's true that a lot of endowment income is often from "large gifts", which at Albany aren't that large -- maybe $10k. And if alumni are in the habit of giving (at least *something*), then if and when they have more income or other windfall they are likely to give more.

 

Just my 2 cents...

I agree with this statement so much. I've been giving for years. A little at first and more and more over the years. Still not a ton but it's what I can do. Wish I could give more and hopefully in the future I will be able to.

 

Little known fact on this board: My wife is also a UA grad. We met there and have been together ever since. :)

 

See you all tomorrow!
