Westmont Magazine Students Take to the Phones
For five weeks in February and March, Westmont students spent the evening calling alums to raise money during the annual phonathon. Unless otherwise designated, these gifts support The Westmont Fund.
Carolee Halopoff Peterson ’88, director of annual giving, has established two goals for this effort: raising $50,000 and increasing the percentage of alums who make gifts to the college. In 1996, only 13 percent gave to Westmont.
Three alumni trustees have agreed to match dollar-for-dollar every contribution from a new alumni donor or an alum who has not made a gift in recent years. Carolee hopes that the opportunity to double their gift will encourage many such alums to make a pledge when a student calls.
