This report presents the findings of the 2013 Annual Survey of Philanthropy in Higher Education (ASPIHE) in South Africa. The survey, which is the first in what we hope will become a regular annual series, was conducted by EduActive Solutions Ltd on behalf of Inyathelo with financial support from the Kresge Foundation.
Owing to a number of factors, the Advancement industry in South Africa’s higher education (HE) sector is expanding, but precious little information is available about the state of philanthropic support. With this in mind, the ASPIHE initiative is intended to introduce a robust mechanism for collecting reliable and consistent information about philanthropic support and prompt similarly comprehensive work on other forms of third-stream income in the HE sector.
Central to Inyathelo’s work is building and sharing new local knowledge through top-quality research publications. Our research has covered areas such as higher education Advancement practices in Africa, access and success rates in tertiary education, and funding frameworks and approaches in South Africa.
All of Inyathelo’s research reports are available for free download.
