CALS would like to thank all of our students who participated in the College’s Telefund drive. When this season’s effort got underway, the CALS development team offered a $100 bonus to any student who could bring in a minimum of five gifts of at least $500 during November and December. Two callers met this goal. One was CALS student Sara Vanderstappen, who brought in 15 such gifts. Another student, Megan Hauser brought in 5 gifts of at least $500. Together, the two raised more than $10,000.
Sara is a Dairy Science and Spanish major from Lake Geneva and is coming up on her one-year anniversary with the Telefund. Megan has been with the Telefund for over two years and is a Political Science and Russian major from Menomonee Falls, who also volunteers as a Conversational English Tutor through the Greater University Tutoring Services (GUTS).
The Telefund is an important source of funds — especially discretionary funds that can be used for unexpected special projects. Thanks Sara and Megan! For more information on the CALS Telefund drive please contact Brian Hettiger at Brian.Hettiger@uwfoundation.wisc.edu.
