Autumn 2015 Kent Opportunity Fund telephone fundraising campaign

A dedicated team of 23 student callers spoke to over 1,300 alumni across the UK during this autumn’s telephone fundraising campaign, during which time they shared their experiences at Kent, updated alumni on all the latest news from the University, and also spoke about the Kent Opportunity Fund, which supports a range of projects that help transform the lives of students at Kent.

Our student callers had a fantastic time sharing their memories with those who attended Kent before them. Many received offers of mentoring support from alumni who remember only too well how daunting the world of work can be, and over £71,000 was raised for the Kent Opportunity Fund, the highest total for our telephone campaign to date.

Every year the Development Office organises telephone campaigns to raise funds for the Kent Opportunity Fund. Donations and pledges received during will enable ground-breaking research to be undertaken by exceptional scholars, help financially-vulnerable students to complete their degrees, and support activities and projects that equip students with the skills and experience to become the leaders of tomorrow.
