"On behalf of all Worcester State students, thank you for your support."
The WSU Phonathon Callers.
It's never too late to change the world! One of the most important calls you’ll receive this year may come from a WSU student on behalf of the Worcester State Fund.
After a busy day of classes and campus activities, a team of students come to the Shaughnessy Administration Building to reach out and call loyal alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends. They are eager to talk with you about the many ways your generosity supports quality education at WSU.
In 2012-2013, 1,180 phonathon contributors gave more than $73,645 to support student scholarships, computer and laboratory equipment, program development, student research projects, student internships, and so much more. This year, our goal is for 1,350 contributors to participate.
Does my gift make a difference?
Every gift makes a difference, and ongoing support from our donors is critical. As a public institution, we rely heavily upon the support of alumni, parents, and friends of the University who believe in our mission. In addition, participation in corporate matching gift programs frequently enables donors to double or triple the impact of their gift. See your Human Resource Department for more details about participation and match levels.
Today, your support is more important than ever. State appropriations account for only 26% of WSU’s revenues and the cost of providing an excellent education continues to climb. Students require access to the latest tools, technology, and programs to be competitive in an increasingly challenging global environment.
At WSU, we are committed to preparing students for personal and professional success in a changing world. To fulfill that commitment, we rely on support from generous donors like you who share our commitment to quality public higher education.
Your support today can help change the way the world works!
So when a WSU student calls to request your Annual Fund support, please answer the call.
