The SNHU Telefund is an annual fundraising effort that strives to build a greater awareness of, interest in and support for Southern New Hampshire University. The student Telefund team supports the university’s Institutional Advancement office by raising alumni, parent and friend giving rates, increasing gifts, acquiring new donors, providing information and engaging the university’s constituencies.

Throughout the year, students are hired and trained to call our alumni, parents and friends to build relationships and raise money for the university. When you receive a call from the SNHU Annual Fund, even if it’s just a call to say, “thank you for your gift,” there is an SNHU student on the other end of the line.

Why do we call alumni?

We call alumni because it is the closest thing to a personal visit. In addition, it gives us an opportunity to update you on events and campus happenings. These calls also underscore the importance of the Annual Fund program and your participation in it.

Meet the team

Telefund callers are students from all over campus who enjoy speaking with alumni, sharing university news, and verifying or updating contact information.
