Join the U Student Philanthropy Team

What Does Working On The U Student Philanthropy Team Involve?

Get paid to drink coffee and talk on the phone! Team members call alumni, parents, friends, and fans of the University of Utah and associated programs to update records and ask for donations. Student team members may also offer support for Annual Giving initiatives such as U Giving Day in the form of tabling or putting up signs.

Do U Have What it Takes?

You don’t need any prior work experience to join the team. We are looking for enthusiastic students who love the U and want to connect with alumni about the great things happening on campus. Students must be comfortable asking for money over the phone.
