Do you give money to your alma mater? I know that a lot of people take pride in being able to give to their school to support the students who come behind them.

I do not and I think I can speak for most people. By the time I got out of college, I was so broke I had to borrow money to move to my new job. Over the years with a husband and family there has just not been any extra money to contribute.

Some people might be more inclined to give if they weren't bombarded with solicitation calls. I have a friend who says that she gets more calls asking for contributions to her alma mater than all of the other telemarketing calls she receives combined.

I agree with Rayne. If I hadn't had to take out $30,000-$40,000 in loans to complete my education I might be more induced to giving money to the school I attended and got my Associates degree from.

I would say I am caught in circumstances just like everyone else here and at times it becomes a bit challenging to start contribution as an alumni.

Even if I had a surplus of funds to donate somewhere, I wouldn't donate to my school. I'd rather donate to a charity that takes care of orphans or whales or something.
