Newsletter for Office of University Relations and Delvelopment.
in April the university of Arkansas at Pine Bluff kicked off its 9th Annual Phonathon. While other students prepared for the end of the semester and going home, 12 devoted and energetic student callers spent their evenings in the Direct Marketing Center of the office of Development. For nearly five weeks, student callers rang the phones of thousands of uAPB alumni, friends, and supporters to update their records, present the opportunity for giving, and to have conversations about yesteryears. this year’s goal was to raise $100,000 towards the Lifeline endowment Fund to assist students in dire need of financial support. Collectively the student callers received over $107,000 in pledges, and as June 30, 2011, nearly 50 percent of the pledges had been paid. the majority of the donations were earmarked for the Lifeline endowment Fund and will be matched dollar-for-dollar through the title iii Program, u.S. Department of education, office of Post-Secondary education, institutional Services Program. this year, the student callers took a special interest in making a difference. each caller made a contribution of thirty dollars to the Lifeline endowment Fund. Brianna Buchanan, a first year student caller, shared her appreciation for the donors that responded, "YeS, i WiLL" when we asked for support. Buchanan went on to say, “Because of them [donors], the Phonathon was a success, not only because they gave, but because they took the time to talk to me and other students and inspired us to give back.” Fall | Winter 2011 Edition University of Arkansas Pine Bluff | University Relations and DevelopmentUniversityofArkansasPineBluff|UniversityRelationsandDevelopment as of June 30, 2011, the following individuals have made donations to the 2011 Phonathon: Betty S.
