Annual Giving Volunteers

Welcome to the BW Annual Giving Volunteer's page,  a resource for current volunteers of the University.  Feel free to use it how you see fit!

If you're interested in becoming a volunteer in Fiscal Year 2014 or if you have suggestions on how to improve this page, email Aimee Bell, Director of Annual Giving, at  Also, if you're a current volunteer that's missing information (i.e. email address), please send that along to Aimee as well. 

Why are volunteers vital to the Annual Giving's success?

Annual Giving volunteers are extremely important because they assist the Annual Giving Office with one of the most essential aspects of fundraising...stewardship!  By serving as a liaison between alumni and friends of BW, volunteers do the important work of building and maintaining relationships with donors to the University by writing or emailing thank you notes of appreciation.

Additionally, Annual Giving volunteers serve as a source of information about current campus events.  They also keep BW's Advancement Services Department informed of important changes in personal and employment contact information of alumni and friends.

Responsibilities (Updated for Fiscal Year 2014)

1.  Make a personal gift to one of eight funds within annual giving and be an example to BW alumni and friends.  We strive for 100% participation from our volunteers so it's important to contribute, regardless of the amount of your gift.  Thank you in advance for your support!

2.  Twice a year, thank donors (preferable with a brief handwritten note).

3.  Attend and participate in alumni events (if able).

4.  Assist BW with recruiting future Yellow Jackets - YJ4L!

5.  Inform BW alumni and friends of current issues at the University and provide feedback on their interests and concerns.

6.  Help BW maintain up-to-date contact information for alumni and friends.

7.  Remain in regular communication with BW Annual Giving staff and fellow Annual Giving volunteers.

8. Participate in other opportunities such as the new online e-Ambassador program and provide important feedback on events and other programs. If you are interested in joining the e-Ambassdor team to share BW news and advocate for Annual Giving on social media, please contact Christina Aldrich at
