Dialling a difference
The appeal raised $120,128 in cash and pledged gifts to support ANU, including to The ANU Fund and the Konzo Prevention Fund. The ANU Fund contributes to scholarships and prizes, teaching facilities, campus activities and innovative research.
Over six-and-a-half weeks, 42 students called alumni to share news about campus, discuss ways for alumni to stay connected and ask for support. For the first time, alumni in the United States, recent graduates and graduates from the 1950s and 60s received calls as well. The response from these alumni was incredibly positive.
ANU students had 4,782 conversations with alumni and friends, resulting in 813 pledged gifts.
