The Griffin Line
Through the Griffin Line, Gwynedd Mercy University's phonathon center, the University reaches out to personally connect with alumni in order to convey important news, gather updated alumni information and make the case for Annual Fund support -- and who better to serve as ambassadors than our students?
The Griffin Line is a year-long effort driven by the enthusiasm and talent of students who gather Sunday through Wednesday evenings. Each student actively maintains ties with alumni and works to increase alumni participation of the Annual Fund.
Alumni participation is not just critical in helping to provide students with financial aid. A successful participation rate also keeps Gwynedd Mercy University competitive. Publications like U.S. News & World Report use alumni satisfaction as a factor in their ranking. Your satisfaction is demonstrated through your participation.
Griffin Line callers are trained in basic skills and marketing techniques before making their first call. In addition, supervisors are always available to offer support and training on a continuous basis.
