Each year, ECU students reach out to alumni and parents through Telefund. These students call to update alumni records (new address, new employer, etc.), to talk with alumni about their East Carolina experience and share their own, and to ask for annual gifts to the university.
Annual gifts made through Telefund support scholarships, funds for excellence, college general funds, departmental funds, the university’s greatest needs, and much more! Alumni and parents can choose which area of the university they would like to support.
Make a gift through Telefund three ways: credit card, pledge, or installment.
Credit Card gifts made through Telefund are processed as a secure, online transaction. These gifts make an immediate difference for the university as funds are readily available.
Pledges are the promise of a gift to be paid at a later time. Most pledges are fulfilled within 30 days of the commitment. Alumni and parents that make a pledge will receive information in the mail and through e-mail on how to complete their gift.
Installments are also available. Gifts can be split into smaller amounts to be completed by the close of the fiscal year on June 30. Employment through Telefund offers ECU students flexible schedules, competitive pay, and a great work environment.
