What is the Cowboy Calling Program?

Comprised of nearly 66 student fundraisers this enthusiastic group works year around, five days a week to raise funds for the university, focusing their efforts on academic and financial student support.

While most prospects are alumni, callers also contact parents and friends of the university. Five part-time student supervisors and three part-time student program managers manage the part-time student callers who can make up to 5,000 phone calls in one night!

Strengthening Relationships

More often than not the Cowboy Calling students are the only voice of OSU our supporters hear, therefore, these students play a vital role in establishing and maintaining a strong relationship with our supporters.

Acknowledgement

Immediately after each phone call the caller signs the pledge card for prospects with whom they spoke; these cards are personal in that they identify the caller/signer as an OSU student and contain a brief note of thanks.

All prospective donors should receive correspondence from the Annual Giving office within a week of their call, regardless of whether a pledge was made. This is our commitment in showing you how much your time and thoughtful consideration helps advance the ideals and programs of OSU.

Your Impact Starts Here

The Cowboy Callers play a significant role in our OSU annual giving efforts. For example, in fiscal year 2008, student callers contacted more than 15,325 alumni and friends. Of these, 31% resulted in a pledge of support to the university, for a total of 4,804 pledges and $441,337 raised.

Working for our program not only raises money for OSU, but also educates student callers about the importance of giving back.
