Fundraising FAQ
How does Mason’s endowment compare to other Virginia schools?
Big thanks to Daniel Zimmet for asking this question at the March retreat!
This data comes from the National Association of College and University Business Officers and Commonfund Institute (NACUBO for
short). The list includes 843 American and Canadian institutions. Below is a select list of Virginia institutions to give you an idea of
where Mason stands.


2012 Endowment Funds % Change from 2011


University of Virginia




University of Richmond




Virginia Tech




Virginia Commonwealth Univ.




Old Dominion University




James Madison University




George Mason University




Longwood University




Radford University



Consider this: Harvard and Yale hold the top two spots respectively, but there is a 63% gap between them. In fact, the bottom 315
schools all have less than $60,000,000 in their individual endowments (37% of the institutions on the list). It’s important to remember
that change at this level (i.e. working with such large sums) is typically very incremental. Thus, annual percentage change is a better
judge of endowment performance. Mason’s Board of Trustees overhauled the Foundation’s investment strategy for 2013 as a result of
the 2012 performance. In August, we will let you know the results of those changes!
