Advancement Review 2009–2010


Office of College Advancement Fundraising Report


During fiscal year 2009–2010, in the midst of one of the most serious economic downturns in this nation’s history, Harvey Mudd College saw firsthand the loyalty of our trustees, alumni, parents and friends. This community’s talent, energy and commitment to the College’s mission belies our relatively small numbers. Overall, 2009–2010 was a successful year, with just over $18 million in gifts and pledges received from all sources. While this is quite a bit lower than last year’s record fundraising total—when HMC received a $25 million pledge from Mike and Mary Shanahan—we saw encouraging signs of growth in many areas:


• 1,851 alumni contributed nearly $684,000 through the Annual Mudd Fundd. Over the past two years, gifts to the Annual Mudd Fundd have increased 37 percent.


• 36 percent of contactable alumni contributed, up from 33 percent in 2008. The class of 1965 had the highest participation rate: 63 percent.


• The number of parent donors increased by 20 percent. • Despite the economy and corporate belt-tightening, the Office of Corporate Relations secured an outstanding roster of Clinic Program sponsors, and foundations contributed nearly $1 million.


• Giving in support of campus diversity increased, with $450,000 going to the President’s Scholars Program.


• HMC welcomed 23 new friends into the Legacy Society, which recognizes donors who have made a commitment to support the College through bequests and deferred gifts. Estate distributions from Legacy Society benefactors provided roughly $435,000 for scholarships and programs.
