At Academic Advancement Partners, we embrace the growing body of research around the study of philanthropy, and in particular, those studies related to giving for higher education. This growth is being driven in large part by the expansion of courses, certificates and full degree programs in nonprofit management and philanthropic studies at more than 300 colleges and universities in the U.S.

We actively follow new findings and integrate them into our programs and services. Many of the citations in this helpful list of publications and other resources have been utilized in shaping our educational curriculum and are used as assigned readings.


We are also constantly thinking about larger issues affecting higher education fundraising and sharing our thoughts through our blog series.
