Today marks the beginning of VTS’ Annual Spring Phonathon. Thank you to those students, faculty, and staff who have volunteered to call our alumni and friends this week.  You are part of a rich history of VTS community involvement in this important endeavor, and I am personally grateful for your help.
If you have not yet volunteered, there is still time. Please sign up here to make calls on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday (April 9-11) from 6:00-9:00 p.m. Your commitment of just a few hours to thank and encourage our generous donors nurtures these treasured relationships.  Our friends and alumni love to hear from those of us who benefit from their generosity, and they will be delighted to share their stories about how much VTS means to them.
Volunteering for the phonathon is formative.  It is important to for all of us to be able to talk to people about how they invest in the future of the Episcopal Church. In the words of Henri Nouwen in The Spirituality of Fundraising, “Whether we are asking for money or giving money, we are drawn together by God who is about to do a new thing through our collaboration.”  Join us.
If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Greiner, Director of the Annual Fund at
