The Phonathon is a calling program where our students strive to speak to as many alumni, parents and friends of the College as possible each and every year. By keeping these essential partners informed about Wesleyan and its needs, we hope to raise considerable private resources, which will allow the College to maintain the quality of its programs for future generations. Additionally, we strive to increase the number of alumni who participate in our annual giving program. This participation plays a crucial role in our US News and World Report Ranking.
When to Expect Our Call
We host two calling seasons each fiscal year. The first one runs through September and October and the second one runs January through February. Phonathon is the easiest way to pledge support to Wesleyan. Make sure we have your phone number on record so that you won't miss the opportunity to speak with a current student.
The Phonathon team would like to thank everyone who took their calls during the 2010-11 year.
