News : University Partners with ALSAC to Open Donor Call Center for St. Jude
Memphis, TN, USA, April 19, 2016 -- The University of Memphis and ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, will soon be needing up to 30 U of M student interns to staff its donor call center, which is planned to open in the university’s Billy Mac Jones Building on Normal Street.
U of M student interns will seek contributions by calling St. Jude’s current and potential donors as part of ALSAC’s donor engagement program.
"We are excited about the partnership with the University of Memphis as it presents a great opportunity to engage in meaningful community collaboration with incredible young people," Richard Shadyac Jr., president and CEO of ALSAC said. "Ultimately, we hope this arrangement provides valuable professional and philanthropic experience for University students, and they will consider long-term career opportunities for employment at ALSAC or St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital after graduation and continue to find ways to give back."
An internship position in the call center may be a great opportunity to gain some professional and philanthropic experience for U of M students, although, some students are already ahead of the curve.
Students who lead Up ‘til Dawn, a collegiate fundraising program, on their college campuses educate the local community about St. Jude while also raising money through a variety of fundraising activities.
At the end of the program, campuses host a finale event and stay up until dawn celebrating their achievements and honoring the patients at St. Jude.
"The donor contact center is a great example of what can happen when the U of M partners with world leaders like St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to create new internships for our students that offer opportunities to develop critical skills for future success, and make our world better," M. David Rudd, U of M president, said in a U of M press release.
"We couldn’t be more proud than to work with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital," Rudd said.
