Data Sources

The Advancement database - Raiser's Edge

Inclusions and Exclusions


  • Alumni with valid contact information- selects all alumni who have a home, business, or other valid contact address on the database
  • Alumni donors-anyone who has made a gift during a discrete fiscal year period


  • Alumni without a valid address on their record are not considered "reachable", and therefore are not factored into the participation rate
  • Currently we do not include alumni with only a valid email address (i.e. require a valid address)


Fall 2015 - 2013/14 # of alumni was corrected from 7,867 to 6,119
