American universities have millions of dollars in funding from alumni

The top two universities in the US, Princeton and Williams, are sponsored millions of dollars each year by alumni, which account for more than 50% of the university's total fund.

College is a launch pad for many students, helping them to have the skills needed for the job after graduation. Many successful students, owning millions of dollars in assets, did not hesitate to sponsor the university to show their gratitude.

In 2018, Michael Bloomberg, an entrepreneur and former mayor of New York City, invested $ 1.8 billion in Johns Hopkins University, his alma mater. Similarly, Nike co-founder Phil Knight, a former University of Oregon student, has donated millions of dollars to his alma mater over the years.

According to a study by the Council for the Advancement and Educational Aid, in 2019, alumni contribute more than $ 11 billion to universities across the United States.

The US News and World report also researched and collected data from more than 1,451 US universities in 2017-2018 and 2018-2019, then reported the average percentage of contributions by alumni over these two years compared to total fund of that university.
