In partnership with CASE, CCAE has released the key findings of the 6th edition of the CASE Insights on Philanthropy (Canada) with CCAE.

This year’s survey mark’s 6 years of the initiative to develop a comprehensive and authoritative data source of Canadian philanthropic efforts in higher education. In total for 2023, 42 participants completed the survey.

The report includes data and key findings for 2023 and the associated trends as it relates to prior editions. Over the years the survey has been adjusted to align with CASE’s global reporting standards to ensure proper benchmarking both internally and on the global scale. When reviewing the report it is important to recognize this distinction and note how the data is displayed. The release of the report is an important step for Canadian institutions in light of continued post and pre-pandemic analysis and associated philanthropic trends to post-secondary institutions.

2023 Highlights: 

  • More than $1.47 billion in total dollars (funds received) raised from just over 211,000 donors.
  • Among the 24 institutions that have reported consistently since 2018 we saw a 12% decrease in total funds received in 2023 compared to 2022 (from CAN$1.38 billion to $1.22 billion), though the sector is still exceeding pre-pandemic levels of $1.08 billion received in 2019.
  • Alumni donors, as a percentage of total donors, played a significant role in the overall funding landscape, landing at 50.8% of the donor pool, and accounting for 19.2% of funds raised.
