There are many opportunities for Michigan Tech students to volunteer, give back, connect with alumni, and learn about the Huskies community from a philanthropic perspective.
Looking for a way to network with alumni while gaining fundraising experience? A student caller position at the TechLine may be a good fit for you.
“TechLine is great opportunity to learn more about the University and connect with alumni. Working at TechLine is fun and gives me the chance to support departments, scholarships, and organizations. It’s a great networking opportunity to be able to connect with alumni and help raise funds to support the University.”
—Paul Bork, TechLine senior caller
In 1977, Michigan Tech Student Foundation was founded, ushering in the first group of students to pick up their phones to call alumni across the United States. About 15 student callers raised thousands of dollars for the Annual Fund in their first year—sparking Michigan Tech’s rich TechLine tradition.
Since its inception, TechLine, the student call center, has grown to become the largest fundraising opportunity for current students to become involved with on campus. Beginning July 1 of each year, students work together to call thousands of alumni, parents, and friends of the University. Student callers share news of exciting things happening on campus in the coming year, and procure donations for programs and activities that each Tech student benefits from daily.
Student Philanthropy Council
The Student Philanthropy Council (SPC) is a group of student volunteers who are dedicated to sharing the impact and importance of private support on Michigan Tech's campus. SPC gives students a close-up look at University fundraising operations through direct involvement in philanthropic marketing and campaigns.
SPC’s goals are to provide a student perspective on giving back, to promote awareness of the ways private gifts impact student life, and to establish a legacy of philanthropy that enhances the future of Michigan Tech.
