Data on 2,822 Vanderbilt University graduates were used to investigate alumni giving behavior during the 8 years after graduation. A two-stage model accounting for individual truncation was used first to estimate the likelihood of making a contribution and second to estimate the average gift size conditional on contributing. The type of financial aid received as an undergraduate appears to have a greater influence on subsequent alumni generosity that the amount received. Adding some scholarship to a loan-only package or eliminating all loans from a mixed loan-grant package increased the likelihood of a subsequent contribution. Increasing the total size of the package or altering the proportions of an already mixed package appears to be inconsequential for future donations. Students who receive small merit scholarships contribute more as alumni than students who receive either no merit scholarship or a large merit scholarship. (Contains 5 tables and 18 references.)
