Alumnus Donates to Tippie College Online

Online giving to Iowa's public universities has skyrocketed, particularly at the University of Iowa, where Web donations for 2005 reached nearly $1.4 million. Online donations still represent only a small portion of all university giving, but the ease and flexibility of giving online may be a key to snagging younger donors, foundation officials and donors said. "I love it when there's an opportunity to donate online," said SEAN DAVISON, 39, a U of I graduate who lives in Carson City, Nev. "I can control the timing and I can control where (the money) goes." Davison and his wife, Nancy, 34, use the U of I Foundation's Web site to donate about $1,500 a year to the Tippie College of Business, where he earned his master's degree in 1998, and the physical therapy graduate program, where she earned her master's degree in 1997.
