Volunteers in the College’s first national phonathon on Oct. 13 raised $267,605.

“It was a great night for Lafayette. So much of what we are able to accomplish in the Annual Fund is the direct result of the efforts of our volunteers,” says Deb Cummins, assistant director of the Annual Fund. “Their assistance in contacting classmates directly has a profound effect on our results.”

More than 80 alumni volunteered at phonathons in eight cities, securing 521 pledges.

“Our motto for the past few years has been ‘Your Participation Counts,’” says Cummins. “There is no better example of this mission than what happened on October 13. Collectively, we were able to make a tremendous impact on the life of the College.”

The breakdown of pledges and dollars: Central New Jersey, 127 and $88,000; Boston, 35 and $20,950; New York City, 76 and $22,000; Philadelphia, 43 and $24,800; Washington, D.C., 51 and $38,150; Lafayette, 98 and $16,635; Westchester, N.Y., 65 and $54,560; Chicago, 25 and $2,545.
