What is Phonathon?
Loyola's Phonathon program calls alumni and parents to raise financial support for Loyola's 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 forwad 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 per 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?
