Donations from CSU graduates lagging

Local News - The Coloradoan - "Once most Colorado State University graduates get their degrees, they never look back ... at least when it comes to opening their checkbooks.
Of CSU's 143,679 living alumni, only 11,741 - about 8 percent - wrote a check to help support the university in the 2003-2004 school year.
They gave $3.3 million that year, the latest numbers available.
As far as research universities go, that's pretty low.
When CSU President Larry Penley took office in 2003, CSU was near the bottom in terms of alumni giving, both in the number of graduates who donated and the amount."
