Phonathon Employees

Loyola's Phonathon program calls alumni and parents to raise financial support for the Evergreen Annual Fund. Phonathon is a year-long effort driven by more than 40 enthusiastic students, each with their own unique Loyola experiences they are looking forward to sharing.

Why is Phonathon important?

Loyola's Annual Fund provides extra support for almost every budget on campus, from helping to fund student research, to buying more lab equipment and even to supporting clubs and activities. With a goal of raising over $250,000 towards the Annual Fund each year, Phonathon is a very important part of helping the University reach its annual fundraising goal. This personal contact is the best way to communicate important campus news and explain the importance of the Annual Fund. Who better to serve as an ambassador of the Annual Fund than a Loyola student?

"From my first semester freshman year Phonathon has been a place of both personal and professional growth for me. Not only has Phonathon helped me to develop crucial communication skills, but it has helped me to gain a better understanding of philanthropy and its importance on Loyola's campus. I would strongly encourage any student to get involved with Phonathon and learn how they too can help build a better future for Loyola!" - Julia, Manager
