Alumni answer the call in support of their Hallam community
From Monday 25th February to Thursday 11th April 2019, our team of passionate Sheffield Hallam students will took to the phones to call our alumni to find out about their experience since their time with us.
Students updated alumni on news from the University, found out more about their links to Hallam and Sheffield and offered alumni the chance to hear more about our fundraising efforts for the Hallam Fund and how they could support in a variety of different ways.
In previous years, we have had a generous response from our alumni community during the campaigns. Last year, alumni pledged nearly £75,000 in donations to the Hallam Fund's three areas:
- Support for students from disadvantaged and under-represented backgrounds, particularly those leaving foster care; students who have carer responsibilities; and students who face estrangement because of their family or financial situations
- Opportunity bursaries which ensure all students can access career-enhancing and inspiring opportunities regardless of their background and financial situation
- Grants to ensure our researchers tackle some of the biggest challenges that we face across society today
If our students intended to call you during the campaign, you would have received an email or letter in advance to let you know, giving you the option to opt out. Alumni can also update their contact details and preferences at any time.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you are interested in hearing more about the Hallam Fund and our 2019 campaign.
