Administrators from Cornell’s Alumni Affairs and Development Office say there will be numerous positive effects stemming from the record-breaking number of alumni donations during the 2012-2013 fiscal year.

Cornell saw an 8.4 percent increase in number of alumni donors during this time period, according to a University press release. The Council for Aid to Education has ranked Cornell seventh nationally for gifts received, with $475 million from donors.

According to Charles Phlegar, vice president for alumni affairs and development, the money raised in 2012-2013 represents “the largest cash total in Cornell’s history.”
