What is Telefunding?

At the University of San Diego Telefunding Center, students raise money for scholarships, financial aid, faculty enrichment, new buildings, technological updates and materials for the library. Each year, a staff of 35 students reach out to over 35,000 alumni, parents and friends to help keep them connected with USD. As representatives of the university, telefunding student callers raise over $400,000 each year.


Each semester, students are trained over a three-day course to call our alumni, parents and friends to build relationships and raise money for the university. When you receive a call from the University of San Diego Telefunding Center — even if it’s just to thank you for your support — there is a USD student on the other end of the line.

We Thank You For Your Support!
