The Charitable Giving to Universities in Australia and New Zealand Survey collects detailed information about fundraising and donors to measure the philanthropic performance of higher education institutions. It also provides an estimate of the overall impact of philanthropy on the higher education sector. This survey of philanthropic giving uses the Ross-CASE Survey methodology adopted by UK universities. It is an important tool for institutional leaders and development and alumni staff who work at education institutions as it allows them to be more rigorous in benchmarking, more confident in accountability, and more persuasive in relationships with alumni and other donors. This survey is a key source of information on this subject, enabling institutions to compare themselves with similar universities. This year's report, which draws on information from 2013-2015, charts several heights--though it also indicates some areas for concern and for future attention. The largest number of universities to date have taken part this year: 24 in total, with over 50 percent of eligible Australian institutions submitting a response. Being willing and able to undertake a demanding benchmarking exercise is not only an indicator of increasing competence; it also provides a valuable tool for improving fundraising performance. The survey Supporting Document prescribes definitions for recording philanthropic income. The main findings in this survey pertain to the following: (1) new funds secured; (2) cash income received; (3) annual funds; (4) donors; and (5) investment in fundraising and alumni relations. An appendix contains the following sections: (1) CASE; (2) About the survey; (3) Reporting conventions; (4) Acknowledgements; (5) Participating institutions; and (6) Glossary. [The Editorial Board members were involved with survey review, script creation, survey promotions, data collection, data verification, analysis, report writing, and dissemination. The 2016 committee consisted of: Nikki McGregor, Rosalind Ogilvie, Stefanie Hardacre, Agatha Albano, Mark Bentley, Louise McCarthy, and Ruth O'Hanlon.]
