Two SUNY Campuses Receive CASE WealthEngine Recognition
Two SUNY campuses received CASE WealthEngine Awards this last summer. Now in its ninth year, this award program recognizes overall performance and overall improvement in educational fundraising.
Westchester Community College was honored in the Overall Performance category, which recognizes institutions that show solid program growth, breadth in the base of support and other indicators of a mature, well-maintained program.
SUNY Stony Brook was recognized in the Overall Improvement category, which recognizes institutions that demonstrate significant program growth over the past three years when compared to appropriate peer groups based on size and institution type.
The CASE-WealthEngine awards are part of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education’s annual Circle of Excellence awards program. They are administered by CASE and sponsored by WealthEngine.
Based on data submitted to the Council for Aid to Education’s (CAE) Voluntary Support of Education Survey, winners are selected by an expert panel of volunteer judges based on a range of factors including patterns of growth in total support, overall breadth in program areas, total support in relation to the alumni/ae base, as well as several other criteria.
