Phonathon

The McKendree University Phonathon is an important tool in helping us to reach our yearly fundraising goals. Through these calls, we will raise money and increase participation for the University’s Annual Fund, which supports our students first-hand in their daily academic and out of the classroom lives.


Things you should know about the Phonathon


•   It is held twice a year for a four week span each time…resulting in over 8,700 calls made!

•   Gifts of any size benefit our students and University. If each of our alums, parents, friends and family contributed just $25, it would amount to $500,000.

•   Our student callers are among the best and brightest the campus has to offer. They go through an interview and training program to get them prepared for this opportunity.

•   Phonathon is FUN and our students agree. Thank you for making this a good experience for them. Feel free to ask them all about how campus has changed, what their classes are like, and who their favorite professor(s) are!
