It’s that time of year again! Students are being welcomed back and campus is bustling with socially distanced excitement. A lot of things are different this year, but our Annual Fall Phonathon is a tradition that continues to flourish.
Thank you for considering a gift during the Fall Phonathon. We appreciate you taking time out of your day to talk to our students, share your experiences and hear updates from campus.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why does Phonathon exist?
We strive to stay connected with our network of alumni, parents and friends to share exciting news from campus. Our student callers also love hearing stories from alumni and receiving advice as they prepare to enter the workforce. In addition, Phonathon is a way for you to help us continue to provide superior experiences for our students both inside and outside of the classroom by making a gift to the Fund for MSOE.
Why are you continuing Phonathon during the pandemic?
We understand that now may not be the best time for many households to make a monetary contribution. However, we have seen that even during this difficult time, our community is driven to come together to support our students as we saw with our Student Persistence Fund earlier this year.
Additionally, these calls are about so much more than just a donation. They are about connecting you with our students, giving you a glimpse of what life is like on campus today and reminding our students that they are not alone.
Why is Annual Giving so important?
Tuition does not cover the full cost of a well-rounded education. Annual gifts provide flexible support for strategic priorities throughout the year including state of the art programs, extracurricular activities, continued campus traditions, guest speakers, and more to make a student’s experience memorable.
