Student callers are essential to the success of the Annual Funds and to maintaining strong relationships with the Guilford Community. Most importantly, Guilford Phonathon callers believe wholeheartedly in the mission of the College and understand that the generous support of the Annual Funds by alumni, parents and friends makes it possible for Guilford to maintain a consistently high level of excellence for current and future generations of outstanding students. Student callers are the best ambassadors to talk about the unique Guilford experience - because they’re living it.
During the fiscal year 2013 the Phonathon students brought in $222,000 in gifts and pledges. Many Guilford supporters consider the Phonathon as their preferred method of supporting the College. Thanks to everyone who answered the call!

The 4th annual Guilford College Philanthropy Week takes place on March 10-14, 2014. This date is significant because it is about 78% of the way through school year. It represents the point at which tuition runs out, and donations fund the student experience for the rest of the year!
The purpose of this event is to celebrate philanthropy, and to educate the campus community about giving to Guilford. Each day of Philanthropy Week, there will be a thank you note writing station, Annual Funds table with game, and a senior gift table in Founders.
