Ideally, this will improve our conversion rate, improve our online giving and ultimately increase our alumni participation. 05/01/2012

UNIVERSITY OF NEW HAVEN – RESULTS 4 months into using FAF for athletics fundraising; P2P expected to become a significant part of their fundraising in the near future • Coaches/Captains are amongst the most energetic and well known personalities on campus…and the most effective fundraisers so far on athletics site. • UNH players are required to raise a certain amount annually; they raised money primarily from friends, students and family. UNH values these as acquisition donors to be cultivated for future giving • Coaches raised $ primarily by emailing alumni; many of these gifts were donors that gave to both an annual fund and athletics ask in a single year • Average gift amounts were larger when coaches asked for online gift vs mail • Technology is positively shaping the culture of philanthropy on campus • Overall online giving from alumni & friends (parents) is up 300% year over year through both their standard online giving tools and FAF • Expects most teams to embrace this next year; conservatively forecasting 3-4X growth in dollars05/01/2012
