Students connect with alumni, parents and friends through the UM Foundation Phonathon.

Phonathon callers are an important part of the fundraising team working to increase support for UM. Our students know all about the opportunities to support the University. They help alumni and friends match their giving with their favorite school, college or program, or make an unrestricted gift through the Excellence Fund.

Phonathon team members provide information about the University and campus events, answer questions and address any comments or concerns. They also ask alumni and friends for updates on their careers and contact information.

Last year, 3,434 alumni, parents and friends responded to student callers with $345,556 in pledges and gifts. Read the press release announcing last year's record-breaking results.

Answer the call, and help keep UM's future bright.


To learn more about annual giving, contact Carlyn Runnels, Director of Annual Giving.
