U.S. and Canadian college endowments, FY 2011 and FY 2012

Here are endowments of 843 universities and colleges in the U.S. and Canada for the 2012 and 2011 fiscal years, from the 2012 NACUBO-Commonfund Institute Study of Endowments, released Feb. 1, 2013. The National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) partnered with the Commonfund Institute, an institutional investment firm based in Connecticut, to produce the list, which also shows percentage changes between the fiscal years. Endowments of Canadian institutions are expressed in U.S. dollars.

The percentage change does not represent the rate of return for the institution's investments. Rather, the percentage change in the market value of an endowment from FY 2011 to FY 2012 reflects the net impact of: withdrawals to fund institutional operations and capital expenses; the payment of endowment management and investment fees; additions from donor gifts and other contributions; and investment gains or losses.
