Impacts of personal attachment on Chinese American educational giving

Abstract:

This presentation explores philanthropic motivations of Chinese Americans to support U.S. higher education with a particular emphasis on the lens of emotional attachment. Empirical studies of donor motivation revealed positive influences from personal attachment in giving. Several dominant theories of donor attachment are examined including expectancy theory, the investment model, and identification theory. How are these theories applicable to the case of Chinese American giving to U.S. higher education? Are these theoretical frameworks sufficient to explain Chinese American donor attachment and philanthropy? What non-theoretical motivators pertaining to attachment exist among Chinese American donors? To answer these questions, this research uses data collected from in-depth interviews with Chinese American donors who have donated more than $500,000 to U.S. higher education. This research examines the explanatory limits of traditional frameworks in interpreting Chinese American donor attachment and employs a cultural lens to further explore the meaning and significance of Chinese American donor behavior. The research attempts to synthesize the field of knowledge regarding Chinese American giving with the more commonly studied fields of diversity in fundraising, alumni giving, and donor motivation theories. The findings of this research will benefit American universities by helping them improve relationships with Chinese American donors.
