2016 Fundraising Data

Fundraising Trends at the Nation’s Medical Schools and Teaching Hospitals

Each year, the AAMC conducts a national benchmarking survey to measure the impact, costs, and staffing of fundraising at its member medical schools and teaching hospitals. This survey serves as a management tool to help medical school deans and teaching hospital CEOs assess the effectiveness of their institutional development programs. Through the compilation and analysis of annual data, the ongoing survey project provides the opportunity for medical schools and teaching hospitals to identify philanthropic trends useful for development planning and management purposes. This infographic highlights the 2016 survey analysis of 121 institutions (reporting 2015-2016 gift year data).
