It’s more than a phone call – it’s an opportunity to make a difference.
The annual fall Phonathon gets underway October 16 with more than 100 volunteers – students, faculty, staff, graduates and parents – making calls to increase the ranks of the thousands of supporters who remember Chaminade Julienne each year through a gift to the Annual Fund.
“Your generous contributions through Phonathon go directly to assisting students and providing CJ with the funding necessary to maintain its excellent educational programs,” said Elaine Bonner, Annual Giving Coordinator.
A Phonathon call is also an opportunity to reconnect with CJ. Hear about the exciting additions like the newly renovated auditorium, reconnect with reunion year classmates and discover how faith formation priorities spread beyond the classroom and into the Dayton community.
Phonathon callers will likely make a total of 15,000 calls over the 12-day drive – a daunting task that is well worth the effort.
“Through the investment of our devoted faculty and staff, alumni, current and former parents and community friends, our collective giving allows CJ to continue to be a leader for excellence in Catholic education,” Bonner said. “Excellence you can see in and out of our classrooms as we embrace our mission to work for justice, value all people and serve as models of faith in action at all times.”
Gifts to the CJ Annual Fund supplement tuition and benefit every student through innovative learning programs and integrative service and mission experiences.
“Our students realize and appreciate the investment others make on their behalf,” Bonner said. “Support through the Annual Fund keeps the mission of our founders strong for our students and the entire CJ community.”
