UW-Eau Claire Foundation Telefund

When your phone rings, please take our call!

The Telefund program is an essential part of the UW-Eau Claire Foundation's annual fundraising program. Current students dedicate evening hours to contacting alumni and friends to build relationships and raise funds to support UW-Eau Claire. These gifts help us to provide scholarships, research opportunities, fellowships, study abroad programs and other valuable educational opportunities for students.

Telefund callers request updated contact information, provide updates on the great things happening on campus and answer any questions alumni and friends may have. Calls are placed on Sunday-Thursday evenings year round.

Please take their call and pledge to renew your annual support or consider making your first gift to UW-Eau Claire. Your connection with current students is inspiring and your gifts enrich the value of a degree from UW-Eau Claire — now and for the next generation of Blugolds.

These enthusiastic students are looking forward to visiting with you!

Telefund student callers

“Being more of an introvert, cold-calling strangers was not my idea of fun. But I did it to help support the campus organizations I was involved in and the university. Now, as a donor, I am always sure to help out the callers by providing a donation. I also like to find out a bit about them and encourage them in their studies.”

“Working as a Telefund caller means that I am able to use my voice to advocate for all Blugolds. I absolutely love getting Blugold alumni excited about supporting all of the amazing resources, scholarships and educational benefits UW-Eau Claire has to offer — as well as hearing their stories about their days here on campus.”
