ACU among best for fundraising performancePosted April 01, 2014
The Advancement Division of Abilene Christian University was one of only five universities in its category to be recognized for Best Performance in fundraising by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).
The 2013 award was given to 35 of the 412 institutions that submitted fundraising data. Among "private comprehensive institutions," ACU was named alongside four others, including Gonzaga University and the Rochester Institute of Technology.
An expert panel of volunteer judges selects winners based on data sets provided in the Council for Aid to Education's Voluntary Support of Education survey. Judges look for factors that show solid program growth, breadth in the base of support, and other indications of a mature, well-maintained program.
"This award confirms that we have an incredible team dedicated every day to advancing the mission and vision of ACU," said Billie Currey, interim vice president for advancement. "We are blessed with an amazing group of donors who believe in the power of God working through our students and alumni to transform the world."
ACU last won a CASE Educational Fundraising Award in 2004.
