Philanthropy and American Higher Education follows the issues that have persisted in giving and receiving philanthropy to American colleges and universities from the seventeenth century to present day. Through historical, philosophical, economic and legal perspectives, along with data analysis, Thelin and Trollinger outline their belief that support of higher education through philanthropy is central to the historic and future character of colleges and universities. This timely work is essential to the present and future financial planning and academic direction of institutions, and the future of philanthropy for colleges and universities across the country.Ben Wieder, a€œThiel Fellowships Pay 24 Talented Students $100, 000 Not to Attend College, a€ Inside Higher Ed (May 25, 2011). ...
