While current callers love their jobs now, those who worked for Phonathon in the past still reminisce about their time spent helping to raise money for the Annual Fund. Jenny Young, ‘11, a Phonathon caller for four years at Sweet Briar, now receives calls from a new group of students. “Hearing from students through Phonathon not only gives me the opportunity to speak with them about their experiences, but it is also a reminder of why I give my financial gifts and gifts of time and talent to Sweet Briar. As givers and volunteers, everything we do for Sweet Briar is for the students. Hearing that students are having the same experiences I had is a reminder that everything I am doing is important and that Sweet Briar is continuing to make an incredible impact on young women’s lives.”
Aside from all of this, 2012 has been one of Phonathon’s best years yet! Our 1,517 donors have supported the Annual Fund with well over $300,000. This money will go to every aspect of the Sweet Briar lifestyle, from financial aid to athletics. Thank you for not only picking up your phones and speaking to us, but willingly giving to the Annual Fund. Because of You, Phonathon, and the money which it receives, will help Sweet Briar for years to come.
