The UW-L Foundation currently operates two fundraising campaigns by phone: one in the fall to alumni and parents for the UW-L Fund; and a second in the spring for restricted gifts to departments and colleges. The Foundation employs about 30 current students who enjoy talking to alumni and parents who annually support the University. As telemarketing specialists, students gain valuable work experience. They speak with alumni and friends from all over the country that have one thing in common... UWL.
The phonathon is an efficient and cost-effective method of raising dollars. It allows the us to keep in contact with alumni. We want to hear about new jobs, new families and those wonderful memories attending UW-L. Our student callers may also inform both parents and alumni of changes and current events on campus.
