Alumni, who topped the billion-dollar mark for the first time in 1980-81, increased their giving 18 percent in 1981-82, to an estimated $1.240 billion. Nonalumni individuals, who also gave more than $1 billion for the second straight year, increased their giving 9 percent, to $1.097 billion. Foundations gave more than $1 billion for the first time, with an estimated $1.003 billion in gifts.
Corporations approached the billion-dollar level, giving an estimated $976 million, a 25 percent increase over 1980-81.
