The Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) recently notified Worcester State University that it’s a recipient of the CASE 2019 Educational Fundraising Award, an honor given each year to exceptional fundraising programs at educational institutions in the United States.

According to its website, CASE’s Educational Fundraising Awards recognize exemplary fundraising programs and activities. To be considered for the award, Worcester State University had to demonstrate the highest levels of professionalism and best practice in its fundraising efforts and contribute to the betterment of educational advancement worldwide by serving as a model to which others can aspire.

Worcester State was awarded the Overall Performance distinction given to colleges and universities that show solid program growth, breadth in the base of support, and other indications of a mature, well-maintained program, and is based on a blind analysis of three years of fundraising data each institution submits to CASE.

“The beauty of this awards program is that we look at the data not knowing what institution is being represented. In showcasing these best-of-the-best programs, CASE helps its members identify institutions doing smart and innovative work from which everyone can learn,” said Sue Kubik, an accomplished educational fundraiser and long-time CASE volunteer who led the judging panel this year. This is the first time Worcester State has been honored with an award, one of 29 institutions being recognized for the first time.
