Student calling campaign

Did you know that 76% of SFU donors are alumni? Each year, we reach out to alumni by phone, letter and email to ask for your support. We are constantly amazed by your generosity!

Many people have asked for more information about who is on the other end of the phone call. Our callers are all SFU students - many of them in their first few years of undergraduate studies. They are active in clubs on campus, volunteering in the community and, for most, this is their first real job.

When you receive your call from SFU students, please take a moment to chat, reminisce and find out first-hand how much your donation means to them and to everyone at the university. Thanks for taking the time!
