At Meredith College, students are the backbone of the Meredith Fund’s “Phonathon” program. After an intensive training process, these students help raise funds for the school, build relationships with alumnae, and gain valuable hands-on skills and experience. Additionally, Phonathon callers play a large role in Meredith’s annual Giving Day by calling those who gave during the 24-hour period to thank them for helping us reach our goal.
Phonathon callers are expected to be self-sufficient as well as leaders in their roles. Callers can apply to be Supervisors, acting as the first resource for new callers by training them. Supervisors also monitor each Phonathon shift, supporting callers by answering questions and keeping everyone on track. The Phonathon currently employs 11 student callers.
Students interested in working with Phonathon should contact Meg Sink, ʼ18, assistant director of the Meredith Fund, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send your resume along with your email.
