Private colleges and universities rely on money contributed by individuals and corporations for their operating expenses. Much of this money is put into a fund called an endowment, and the college spends only the interest earned by the fund. A recent survey of eight private colleges in the United States revealed the following endowments (in millions of dollars): 74.8, 53.3, 242.2, 499.2, 124.7, 151.2, 92.7, and 211.4.
