This guide provides step-by-step instructions for donors on how to target their giving, with profiles of successful gifts. American philanthropists long have been generous in their support of colleges and universities. But donors do not always find the results they envisioned for their generosity and good intentions. ACTA has responded by publishing The Intelligent Donor’s Guide to College Giving. Find out how to ensure, in the words of philanthropist and investor Stephen Friess, “that philanthropic dollars are investments in the values of American and its future.”
