Resources & Tools

One of the central tenets of ALUMinate is to provide our members and clients with innovative research so they can systematically and thoughtfully increase alumni engagement and alumni philanthropy. The Resources and Tools provided to Consortium members are divided into two areas:

1. ALUMInate-Generated Research and Materials: We’re constantly conducting assessments and creating resources and tools to help your staff meet the needs of alumni in all life stages and regions.

2. Curated Content: We’ve sorted through hundreds of blogs, articles, and tools for advancement and alumni relations professionals to bring you the best resources to strengthen your department’s outreach.

Our research and the curation of this content are ongoing, so check back regularly. And if there is a topic or tool you'd like us to focus on researching or developing, please let us know.
