Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Phonathon?
The Phonathon is the front line of the Saint Ben's Annual Giving Program. The Phonathon contacts alumnae, parents and friends of the College by telephone in order to raise money for student scholarships.
Who are we?
The Phonathon team is made up of current students who are first-years through seniors. These students belong to the Phonathon through their work-study program. They are working to help pay for their education, so they especially understand how important scholarships are for students.
Within the Phonathon team, there is a team of student supervisors who lead the callers during their work shifts. Joy Pohland, the Phonathon Director, oversees the entire Phonathon team as it works toward reaching its yearly goals.
What do we do?
We call throughout the school year to reach YOU --alumnae, parents and friends of the College-- to stay connected, not only during your Saint Ben's experience but also for many years after. We work to continue the Saint Ben's tradition of community by keeping you with us and by helping to provide the Saint Ben's experience for current Bennies.
Our main purposes:
- Build lasting relationships with alumnae, parents, and friends
- Share current CSB news and events
- Update the College's records
- Raise money for students scholarships
Where does the money we raise go?
Unless otherwise specified, 100% of your gifts goes to students through Current Scholarships!
Why should you pick up the phone?
Pick up the phone to get in contact with students who love Saint Ben's as much as you do. Keep the College updated on what is happening in your life. We would love to publish your accomplishments in our monthly newsletter! Find out what is currently happening on campus. Most importantly, pick up the phone to help support a current Bennie, so she may have the amazing experience that you did.
