Call Center


The Wake Forest Fund Call Center reaches out to alumni and parents each semester to help them stay involved in annual giving at Wake Forest University. The Call Center is staffed entirely by Wake Forest students who provide a first-hand perspective on life here on campus. No one can explain the importance of the Wake Forest Fund better than the students it impacts.

When a student contacts you from the Call Center, let them know what Wake Forest was like when you were here, find out if your favorite professor is still making that corny joke every semester, learn about exciting new changes on campus, and most importantly, say YES! Support WFU by making a gift to the Wake Forest Fund. Your gift will help us build alumni participation and support the greatest needs of our students and faculty.

We strive to create and enhance positive relationships with each alumnus, parent, and friend of the University. Our callers are trained to ethically solicit gifts for the University, to designate those gifts as requested, and to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

If would like more information, please contact Rebecca Colwell, Assistant Director of the Wake Forest Fund Call Center at
