    Alumni donations are not only needed to fund projects, but they are also considered an important measure of a university’s quality. US News & World Report, an American magazine that ranks US universities yearly, uses donations as an important criterion in college ranking. According to the magazine, the “percentage of alumni giving serves as a proxy for how satisfied students are with the school”.

     

    Alumni donations are a way in which society provides vital support to universities, said Qiao Haishu, a professor from Hunan University, adding that the alumni associations provide benefits in return.

     

    “It will create mutual benefits for universities and alumni,” Qiao said.
