the largest number of donors-325-
a position it has held every year, and
Greensboro as the individual city with
the greatest area contribution-$21,872.
FOR THE NEW YEAR Chairman McLendon said he'd confirmed the appointment of 55 out of the 60 class agents
who will conduct this phase of the
drive. Forty advance gifts chairmen
will be named for this campaign, which
will open in November. Area solicita-
tions will also be staged this coming
year in 55 cities and towns. Altogether
almost 600 volunteers are expected to
participate in the new appeal, according to the Chairman.
In its 15th year AAG has reached
such proportions that the money donated has drawn more than $4,000
interest before being allocated. Another
boon to the annual drive has been the
matching gifts made by industries for
their employees: Under this program
nation-wide, Bost explained, 325 large
industries match the contributions of
their employees to college alumni
giving campaigns. The University at Chap-
el Hill had 66 such gifts last year at an
average of $54 per alumnus. Each of
these was matched by the employer.
Endowed gifts now net over $2,500 a
year for AAG, too--the oldest of these
being a perpetual annual income bequest
given some years ago in memory of a
member of the Class of 1878, and which
now nets AAG over $400 a year.
