College fundraisers are cautiously optimistic as a new survey predicts a 5.2% increase in donations to colleges, universities, and private elementary and secondary schools in 2014.

"The good news is that consumer confidence continues to grow, albeit slowly, and many experts predict that the economy is picking up momentum," John Lippincott, the president of CASE, said.
