  • 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 who reach out to alumni to update contact information, share stories about Montevallo’s past and present, keep alumni informed about upcoming events, and 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.
