Student Phonathon Program

On behalf of the Student Phonathon Program, thank you for making an impact!

The URI Phonathon continues to grow and garner valued support from the URI community. During the recently completed fiscal year, the URI Student Phonathon raised more than $254,000 in cash and pledges from more than 4,200 alumni and parents, and earned the support of 1,100 new donors as a result of the Alumni Participation Challenge. Thanks to your support, URI is able to continuously improve the educational experience for all students.  

Calling occurs weekly during the academic year, so get ready to pick up the phone and talk to one of our energetic and inspiring students. You'll be interested in what they have to say and they'll be happy to connect with you! 

Students helping to raise awareness and annual support for URI

Each semester, 50 enthusiastic and hardworking students reach out to more than 50,000 URI alumni, parents and friends in an effort to increase annual participation and support to the Fund for URI. Serving as “URI ambassadors,” our student callers provide the latest information about innovative programs and initiatives making an impact all across campus. Most importantly, they also seek to increase annual support for the Fund for URI, which provides immediate and flexible funding to the programs and helps limitless opportunities for students.
