In the lead up to the centenary, telephone campaigns form a central part of the regular giving initiative at Swansea University. Over a period of three to four weeks, current students contact thousands of Swansea alumni by telephone to update them on developments at the University since they graduated and offer the opportunity to make a donation to The Swansea Fund.
The telephone campaigns enable alumni to talk with a current student about their memories and experiences of Swansea University. They enable alumni to find out how much the University has evolved while remaining true to its roots of providing an exceptional environment where students can flourish. Our students thoroughly enjoy reminiscing with alumni and you can read more about our student caller experiences here.
The Swansea Fund
In April 2017, 20 current Swansea University students participated in the first campaign the University has held in over a decade. The April Telephone Campaign saw over £100,000 pledged towards The Swansea Fund.
In October this year we will be launching our next telethon. This will offer a unique opportunity to reconnect with both UK and International graduates as we aim to reach out to over 5000 alumni in the UK, US and Canada.
Our student callers are extremely excited by the opportunity to connect with our alumni community so listen out for your call!
Stay connected and be part of a great campaign!
