is the phonathon?
The Phonathon is one of several ways that we keep in touch with
Montevallo alumni and friends throughout the year. The UM
Phonathon Call Team consists of students that reach out to
alumni to update contact information, share stories about
Montevallo's past and present, to keep alumni informed about
and to ask for financial gifts to the University.
If you've ever received a call from
Montevallo right in the middle of dinner or your favorite TV
show, that was more than likely the Phonathon Call Team...
sorry for interrupting your dinner by the way! But our
callers are eager to talk with you about updates to our
beautiful campus, and about how your donations can make a difference
in their lives and in the lives of future students.
The Pledge you make with a Phonathon
caller is your investment in a brighter future for the
University of Montevallo and its students. Your pledge can
be fulfilled at any time during the fiscal year (ends
September 30, 2013).
