The Phoneathon program at Augsburg College consists of a team of 25 current students employed by the Annual Giving department in the Institutional Advancement Office.  Students call during both the fall and spring semesters to reach out to alumni, parents, and friends of Augsburg College.

Augsburg College Student Callers have these goals:

  • Share Augsburg news and invite alumni, parents, & friends to events both on campus and in the metro area
  • Keep the College’s records up to date
  • Raise money for The Augsburg Fund: the unrestricted fund on campus that supports the critical needs of the College
  • Engage and build lasting relationships with members of the Augsburg College community

Every gift matters.  Thanks to our generous donors, last year we were able to achieve great milestones!
