Annual Fund Call Center

Page address:


Give every year. Make a difference every day - now more than ever!

Every semester, 70 students spend a collective 345 hours per week calling alumni and friends to raise private support for academic development of the University's colleges, departments, and programs. Each week, they hear from guest faculty and administration about what's new and upcoming for the Minnesota State Mankato so they can share that information with alumni and friends.

They've got plenty of campus news to share and sure, they're happy to pass on  greetings, suggestions and requests to faculty and staff. During the call, they will ask for a financial gift, but remember, these students are not merely fundraisers. These students are spokespeople for Minnesota State Mankato and serve as important liaisons between our alumni and friends and the faculty and staff on campus.

Their outreach to alumni forms a bridge between the University's past and present. We owe them a huge debt of gratitude — because their hard work is literally building Minnesota State Mankato's future.


Thanks in advance for picking up the phone. Please consider giving generously to the Annual Fund.

Gifts, of all sizes, from people just like you, provide unrestricted funds -- a pool of resources that can be easily directed to where they are needed most.
