Throughout the past academic year alumni of the University have been answering telephone calls from our highly trained group of Student Callers.
We would like to say a huge thank you to each of the 5,000 alumni who took part in this year’s Telephone Appeal by speaking to our team about your time here at Southampton, along with providing our students with valuable information and advice related to their future careers. The appeal is also an opportunity for alumni to connect and engage with the University, discovering what may have changed since you were last on campus and to find out about our events, such as our upcoming Class Reunion, and to engage with us as a volunteer or mentor.
A key benefit of the telephone appeal is raising philanthropic support for our strategic priorities, creating a way for you to make an impact through the Annual Giving Programme. Over 1,000 alumni pledged to make a gift and so far £42,000 (including Gift Aid) has been received from the appeal. We would like to say an extra special thank you to each of our alumni who made a gift this year. Your donations continually help us to provide more in the way of scholarships and bursaries, new and improved equipment and student study spaces, along with allowing us to provide the best and brightest students with the skills they need to reach their future ambitions.
If you were not included in this year’s telephone appeal and would like to speak to one of our students to discover how you can be more involved, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Lastly we would like to thank our dedicated team of Student Callers who have been the driving force of this appeal, as they are every year. Their enthusiasm and dedication to the University continues to offer you a great opportunity to connect with us and to make a real difference for each of our students.
