2018 Telephone Campaign

Our fundraising plans for 2018 are well underway and we are delighted to announce that the annual Brunel University London telephone campaign will be taking place between Monday 4th June to Saturday 30th June. 

Our telephone campaign isn’t just about fundraising, it’s also a great way for us to stay in touch with our alumni and build long-term relationships with our graduates.

How it works

Each year we select alumni to contact. To make sure that the alumni we would like to talk to know about the campaign we will send out a letter or email from us with information and also ways to opt out of the campaign prior to the call.

We talk to as wide a range of people as possible. Whether our alumni are senior managers, just starting out in their profession or are now retired, they all share one thing in common – they all studied at Brunel.

Our team of student callers uses that common ground to start a conversation and encourage our alumni to give. We know that there are different levels of financial support our alumni can offer, which is why we value every gift, no matter the amount. We know that not everybody we speak to is able to donate when we call, but our students still value the opportunity to talk to our alumni about their time at university.

Students will be calling during the evenings and at weekends and we do hope you will be able to take the time to share some memories of your time at Brunel, offer advice and help us plan for the future.

Every person who gives receives a thank-you card, a donor newsletter and regular updates on the impact of their gift.

Our main focus for the campaign is to support the Brunel Scholarships Fund. Higher Education is expensive, but also increasingly important for young people across the country. Alumni support allows us to provide scholarships, bursaries, awards, help for students in financial difficulty and enhance their experience at Brunel. The gift of education is one of the most precious that we can give to the next generation and it is this which the Brunel Scholarships Fund helps to provide.

We partner with a fantastic Fundraising Consultancy called Buffalo Fundraising Consultants to deliver the campaign. The Campaign Managers for 2018 are Jemima and Imi – find out a bit more about them below:
