In Fiscal Year 2016, the cadets who work at the VMI Call Center raised more than $683,000 from VMI alumni and friends. Accepting gifts and pledges by credit card, check, and EFT, they contact alumni and friends Monday through Thursday from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. year-round. They also call donors in order to thank them for their generous support of VMI and its cadets.
These cadets, who receive a salary, must retain an acceptable GPA, and their employment must be approved by the Commandant’s staff and the Dean’s office. They are leaders in their respective classes and within the Corps as a whole.
While Call Center's primary purpose is to seek financial support of the Institute's academic, athletic, military, and cadet life programs, it also provides cadets with opportunities to connect with those who came before them in Barracks and allows alumni to strengthen their bonds with the Corps of Cadets and the broader VMI Family.
So, when VMI calls, please answer and take a few moments to speak with one of our cadets.
