Description

This poster explores the effect of athletic success on charitable donations received by colleges in the Power 5 Conferences, using a time series cross–sectional model. The data set is drawn from IPEDS and ESPN for the years 2009-2016. I find that donations to colleges are not affected by real state per capita income or by measures of athletic success, such as placing in the top 25 rankings and winning a national championship.
