The Alumni Donation MQP focused on discovering and analyzing trends for individuals who have both donated and not donated to WPI. These trends aided in determining how to maximize donations to the school and in determining if an individual has the potential to give in the future. This project examined the effects that gender, age, and other contributing factors of the WPI alumni has on one's probability of donating. Models were created that would enable the Alumni Office to determine the probability of an alumni giving to the school. In addition, this project analyzed activities that have been done in the past, trying to determine which activities promoted more donation and participation, as well as looking for other activities that encourage people to become more active with the school.
