March 20 - April 5, 2017
Each spring, students will phone alumni and friends who believe in them and the mission of Kingswood. Why do we have a Phonathon? There are two primary reasons:
- Students are calling because we need your help. We want to keep quality Bible university education affordable, and we want them to answer God’s call with as little debt as possible. Accordingly, each year the university awards more than $250,000 in scholarship assistance from our general fund. Your response to the Phonathon makes this vital support possible.
- Students are calling to pray for you. Prayer is a vital part of their ministry preparation, and our students would be honoured by the opportunity to join you in praying for any needs and concerns you may have. Our entire campus will be joining us in making this year’s Phonathon a prayer campaign by praying for the requests we receive. We believe God answers prayer!
Through your partnership, Kingswood University is equipping men and women for a lifetime of service as leaders within the global Church.

We are approaching that time of year for our annual Phonathon, when we do our best to contact our supporters by phone. Our goal this year is to reach over 2,000 of you between March 20 and April 5.
As you can imagine, an effort of this magnitude requires many people investing many hours to reach you. However, we believe this Phonathon is worth everything we invest.
Why? Because it gives us an opportunity to connect you with one of our students. Nothing did more to cement my own commitment to Kingswood than getting to know our outstanding students. I believe you will feel the same when you have a chance to converse with one of our student callers.
We think you will appreciate hearing from a current student just what it means for them to prepare for ministry at Kingswood. You will have the chance to ask them about themselves and what is happening on campus.
We also want our students to ask what matters to you. We hope you will allow them the opportunity to pray with you. This phone conversation will likely be one of the most encouraging you have had in a long time.
As a result of this phone call, we believe you will better understand why your financial support is so important. The Phonathon provides a significant portion of our Annual Fund, allowing us to direct more dollars to student financial aid. Our goal this year is to raise at least $65,000.
We understand that some of you are unable to take our call. If that is you, please take a few minutes right now to give online at https://www.kingswood.edu/giving. Giving prior to the calling period allows us to focus our time on those awaiting our call.
We look forward to connecting with you. Expect a blessing as you converse with some of the finest students I have known in more than 30 years of working within Christian higher education. Thanks in advance for your help in making this Phonathon our best yet.
