Alumni and Friends
Once a year, you will receive a call from our student-staffed Phonathon team. They will ask you to make a pledge toward the AB Annual Fund and also give you an opportunity to ask questions about the College or pass along alumni notes. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to meet current students on the phone and see how your yearly gift can impact lives every day. Whether you pledge or not, do not hang up. Use the opportunity to learn and reminisce.
In the Fall of 2010 we sent out postcards asking our alumni and friends to think about their experience at AB University and then our team of Phonathon students called and asked for that experience summed up into a single word—or close to a single word. Listed are just a few of the responses.

AB University always attracts the brightest minds, so we expected some brilliant words. If you’d like to include your word in the list, then please email firstname.lastname@example.org to have it included in our next AB Times publication.
More than two centuries ago, Samuel Johnson said that "The future is purchased by the present." Time has proven over and over the wisdom of Johnson's advice, and you can continue to ensure the future for Alderson Broaddus University. Join fellow alumni by giving a gift every year that impacts every day.
The AB Annual Fund runs from July 1 to June 30 each year.
