Leadership-level gift solicitation
Thank you for joining the Patroon Society volunteer solicitation program! Your role as volunteer provides an invaluable connection and opportunity to solicit gifts on behalf of Rensselaer. As a result of your efforts, Rensselaer is able to increase the amount of dollars available to educate our students. We are grateful for your dedication and time.
Now that you are ready to begin your volunteer solicitations, here are some important details about the process.
- Volunteers in this program make every effort possible to connect with a small group of alumni.
- All of the targeted alumni in your packet have an established giving history at or near the Patroon Society threshold of $2,500.
- The key to this process is sending a letter or email note of introduction, then following up with a phone call. You will set your own schedule for these solicitations while working within a timeline set by the Institute.
As you begin your solicitations, please feel free to contact Janine Hetherington at via phone at (518) 276-2325 (w) or (518) 951-4195 (c) or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or comments. We look forward to your participation in this important program!
