Telefund breaks all-time fundraising record
The Emory Annual Fund’s Telefund Office has raised an unprecedented $1 million from more than 10,100 pledges for fiscal year 2005, Associate Vice President of Annual Giving Francine Cronin announced. These figures are the highest in the Telefund’s 19-year history.

As of April 24, including matching gift dollars, the Telefund raised $1,057,905.82, an increase of 18.1 percent over FY04 figures. More than 35 percent of alumni, parents and friends contacted by the Telefund’s student representatives pledged. The 10,136 pledges represent a nearly 16 percent increase over the previous year. The average gift was $98.68.
