University of Vermont- Fundraising Success
The University of Vermont (UVM) and their “Chatty Cats” student caller program – working in partnership with Harris Connect – have managed to add new donors and increase funds raised over the course of the last five years. Just one year after implementation, they received pledged donations in excess of $1.7 million – an increase of more than 100% and at the same time, the average pledge jumped from $99 to $130. UVM has been working with Harris Connect for more than 30 years, publishing their first alumni directory with the company in 1977. Since then, they produced two additional directories and began working with the Fundraising Division of Harris Connect in 2002. UVM initially entered into a TeleMax® Consulting agreement, but ultimately chose to expand the program for the 2006 fiscal year with the adoption of the company’s TeleMax® Resident Director solution.
