UC Davis raised $104.74 million in 2013, ranking seventh in California and 68th nationally, according to a survey released Wednesday.

The survey, conducted by the Council for Aid to Education, showed an increase in charitable contributions to colleges and universities nationwide of 9 percent last year. The total donations, $33.8 billion, are the highest recorded in the history of the survey.

In 2009, giving fell from $31.60 billion, which was then the historical high point, to $27.85 billion. Giving levels gradually recovered from that loss until reaching this year’s high, the council reported.

Top 10
1. Stanford University, $931.57 million
2. Harvard University, $792.26 million
3. University of Southern California, $674.51 million
4. Columbia University, $646.66 million
5. Johns Hopkins University, $518.57 million
6. University of Pennsylvania, $506.61 million
7. Cornell University, $474.96 million
8. New York University, $449.34 million
9. Yale University, $444.17 million
10. Duke University, $423.66 million

Stanford led the way with $931.5 million, Harvard was second with $792.2 million and the University of Southern California was third with $674.5 million. UCLA was the top public school with $419.6 million. The entire University of California system collected $1.6 billion in donations.

Among the institutions that responded to the survey, 59.5 percent raised more in 2013 than in 2012. Contributions for current operations increased 6.9 percent. Gifts for capital purposes (endowments, property, buildings, equipment and loan funds) increased 12.4 percent.

Giving from alumni increased more than any other source of support, by 16.9 percent. The average gift per contributing alumnus increased 18.1 percent.

And while alumni continued to be generous, fewer of them opened their pocketbooks, with alumni participation declining to 8.7 percent from 9.2 percent in 2012. The council calculates participation by dividing the number of alumni donors by the number of alumni for whom the institution has a means of contact.

Among 951 institutions that reported in 2012 and 2013, the number of donors declined 1.7 percent, while the number of alumni increased 3.7 percent.
