Any other donors getting calls?

Post by ProvoAggie » November 14th, 2019, 8:07 pm

This is honestly one of the coolest perks of being a donor is getting a phone call from a USU athlete. In the past I've had calls from a volleyball player and soccer player. Last year I got a call from Jordan Love and last night Terin Adams. I know it probably takes up a lot of these athletes time to make the calls but I know appreciate it. Who have you heard from?

Haven't gotten a call yet. Last year Jordan Love called and I didn't answer. I will be more prepared this year.

Is there anyway for us to thank the player who called if I was not at home when he called? Thanks!

Yes I did. I didn't catch his name but it was a freshman that called me. Wish I was paying more attention when I answered but cool none the less. Nice friendly chat.

Got a call last night Driving home and it was cool chat with the player. Said some very kind words on what it meant to get a degree & have all the support from donors.

I don't know if there is a minimum but I know that I've gotten calls at $100. On Twitter it looks like calls will be coming for the next few days.

i gave $50 last year and got called by Tipa! Almost didn't answer cause I thought it was USU begging for money again. Told him we'd be there cheering when we win on saturday. He seemed to perk up more with that than at the beginning of the task he was assuredly assigned.

I know right!?! I was just answering the question on how much needed to donate to get a call. It isn't much. I get calls from every organization on campus asking for a little money: athletics, college of engineering, SWE club, ASME club, HASS, ASUSU, and a couple of others. Once you donate even a little to someone they have you pegged for life. It gets a little bothersome is all.

I got a call from Tori Loomis, a freshman gymnast. Apparently, I don't donate as much as AgMac.

JK. I totally love gymnastics and very much appreciated the call. Very cool. Go Aggs!

Pretty funny because my wife just texted me that a Tennis player left a VM on our landline for me today.
Pretty cool.

Christian Holmes on the tennis team left me a message. Pretty cool that they do that!
