Phonathon

The McKendree University Phonathon is an important tool in helping raise money and increase participation for the University’s Annual Fund. The Annual Fund supports McKendree students through scholarship, academic instruction, student services, co-curricular activities, and more. If you are interested in being a Student Phonathon Caller, please contact the Office of Development, Alumni and Parent Relations at annualfund@mckendree.edu or (618) 537-6824. 


Quick Facts About Phonathon


• It is held twice a year for a four week span in the Fall and then two weeks in the Spring…resulting in over 8,700 calls made!

• Gifts of any size benefit McKendree students and the institution. If each of our alums, parents, and friends 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!

  

The next phonathon will be held:
