They care but the real question is where they should invest

their resources? For every minute spent with a donor that gives $1 per year, they could spend that time with a donor who gives $1000's per year. Here is another example. Do you think Verizon or AT&T care about your cell phone service? They do care but what kind of support do they provide to you? 800 number to an offshore call center? Both companies have account teams consisting of many individuals who are dedicated to a single customer. Why? Because they spend million$ every year with their carrier. It is the business model that most organizations adopt and for better or worse, it is here to stay.

I agree that the VAF could do better in almost every respect but I am guessing there is very little accountability in a university environment and little real oversight. JMO
