During the 2017 Phone Appeal, donors contributed $86,355 to The ANU Fund, which supports priority initiatives across campus, focusing on ANU students and staff and upholding the University's reputation as a world leader in research.
The student calling team represent the diverse and vibrant student population at ANU. They share common qualities from their involvement in academic and social life on campus: energy, curiosity and enthusiasm. They bring these same qualities into the call room and to the phone conversations they have with alumni.
The students represent their colleges, schools, residential halls, clubs and many other areas of campus life, leading to rich and engaging discussions with alumni. Over the course of the Appeal, the 40 student callers had a total of 4,567 conversations with ANU alumni and staff.
