What is the Phonathon?
The Student Phonathon is an important program of the CLU Annual Fund that facilitates a connection between current students and CLU's alumni, parents and friends. The Phonathon helps to establish and continue positive rapport with our constituents. Each caller takes their own unique approach to stressing the importance of CLU Annual Fund to the continued growth of our students and the University. During the 2012-2013 Fall and Spring Phonathons combined, the Phonathon students raised over $306,000 in gifts and pledges for the CLU Annual Fund.
Are you interested in being involved with the Phonathon?
Being a member of the Phonathon team is one of the best student positions on campus. In addition to developing interpersonal skills and networking with a diverse group of CLU's constituents, callers receive an hourly rate and also earn performance based rewards. A flexible schedule allows students to work comfortably around classes and activities. We call September-December and late January-March, Sunday through Thursday nights from 5:30-8:30 pm. We hire new callers at the beginning of each semester.
