Join Elon’s growing network of alumni volunteers. Recruiting more volunteers is part of the university’s effort to build a vibrant alumni network. It’s a great way to give back to Elon and stay connected with friends.
Building a Vibrant Alumni Network
Elon Day Champions
Champions play a critical role each year in Elon Day’s success by making an #ElonDay gift, getting non-donor alumni friends to make a gift on Elon Day and sharing on social media networks to spread the word about challenge gifts and other exciting Elon Day activities.
The goal of the peer agent program is to involve alumni in annual giving campaigns on a consistent basis throughout the fiscal year. Agents will be asked to advocate for alumni to be partners, advocates, and most importantly investors. These volunteers are committed to helping Elon reach alumni giving participation goals. They will make a personal financial commitment and contact peers in an effort to secure at least ten donors to Elon each fiscal year. This effort is focused on three annual “sprint outreach periods” including the Elon Luminary Campaign at the calendar year end, Elon Day, and fiscal year end.
Class reunion volunteers are crucial in the planning and success of the milestone reunion weekend. Reunion volunteers advise Elon on event planning and communication strategies. Volunteers also personally contact members of their class to encourage attendance at Homecoming & Reunion Weekend and participation in their class reunion giving efforts.
Senior Class Giving Campaign
The Senior Class Giving Campaign exists to educate seniors on the crucial need for private donations to Elon while also encouraging them to begin their support of the university. This happens by way of the student members of the Senior Class Giving Committee who reach out to fellow classmates to encourage them to give back to whichever department, program or organization had the biggest impact on their life at Elon.
