Who Are We?

In the heart of the Lewis campus lies a room that comes alive each evening with the energy and excitement of our student Phonathon callers. They meet Sunday through Thursday nights during the fall and spring semesters to call Lewis alumni and parents across the nation. Their mission is to increase Annual Giving participation among these alumni and parents, while also establishing relationships and updating those who are unable to come back to campus. In fact, these students are the key element to increasing financial support for Lewis University and contributing to its ongoing success.  

As members of the Phonathon family, all of our callers are committed to helping maintain and improve the Lewis experience for students, both today and tomorrow. These students value the quality education they receive at Lewis, and they realize the life-long advantages that it provides. Yet, without the financial support of our many alumni, parents, and friends, this quality education would be impossible to achieve. For this reason, our Phonathon student callers are not only calling to ask for financial support. They are also calling to thank you for the great opportunities and experiences they are proud to be a part of at Lewis University!


Each night, a group of students work diligently, reaching out to parents, alumni and friends not only to ask them for financial support but to also thank them for the great oppurtunities they are allowed to take advantage of at Lewis University.

Year after year, a series of companies give generously to the Phonathon campaign, which benefits current and future students of the university!
