25 billion dollars!

Last year, Stanford, the topper, received 603 million dollars from private donors. The figures for the next four are: University of Wisconsin at Madison (595 m), Harvard (589 m), UPenn (394 m) and Cornell (353 m). Overall, private donors contributed a staggering 25.6 billion dollars to American colleges and universities in 2005.

These figures are from an article in Inside Higher Ed   by Doug Lederman.

    Your blog is a pretty interesting thing. You seem to collect a lot of India related stuff and it is nicer to read too. I'm now starting to quote some your blog posts.
