Every year about 30 CBU students are hired to call alumni and friends of CBU. Our students are calling to ensure that the University has your accurate contact information, while also calling to update you with campus news and events.
Though students are calling in hopes to maintain a relationship with alumni members, they are also calling to thank you for your previous and continued support of CBU. 90% of CBU's students receive financial aid and scholarships and they receive that support through the annual fund. Last year, the phone-a-thon raised about $110 thousand dollars and this year we have a goal of $140 thousand dollars.
The phone-a-thon students aim for meaningful and memorable conversations with alumni, parents, and friends.
Many universities use professional telemarketing firms to generate support, but we believe nobody can express the gratitude we have for donors as much as students can. We ask that if you receive a phone call from one of these students, please be willing to share your experiences, love and support for Christian Brothers University.
