Exonians generously support the annual telephone fundraising campaign

Thank you to everyone who took the time to speak to one of our student callers in this year’s Telethon.

The final total raised was £101,394, which in these challenging economic times was a truly impressive result, and we are very grateful for the generosity of all those who donated. 42% of the Old Members and Parents who spoke to a student pledged their support, with a further 12% considering making a gift. Just as importantly, all our students had some great conversations with Old Members.

Half of this year’s student callers were in fact returning for their second Telethon, and their enthusiasm is testimony to how much our students enjoy the chance to exchange experiences of College with Old Members – and perhaps pick up a little guidance on life after Exeter at the same time! We hope that all the Old Members who spoke to a student enjoyed the conversations just as much.

As the Telethon was again run in conjunction with the University of Oxford Development Office, Old Members and Parents were given the opportunity to donate to other areas of the Collegiate University including departments, museums and libraries.
