Good question. I don't know.

the money has to come from an alum. gifts from non alums are great of course, but the percentage tracked by USNWR is the percentage of alums that give ANY amount of money on an annual basis.

The question is what if a non-alum were to give in an alum's name?

smu would be happy to have the gift - but it wouldn't count for giving percentage unless the money came from an alum

Planning on rounding up some fellow alumni to give a small boost to the % giving. What is the easiest lowest processing cost way to give?

CS,

Not certain about that. I have simply said someone else's name. I never said it was a gift in their name, even though I paid.

Person in question got credit for the contribution, not me.

Check the quote - gostangs posted it. I would think that it would work the way that you are thinking as well, but gostangs says differently
