When our alumni connect using Switchboard, it brings them closer to the university, it connects them to UP. So ten years down the line, the ask that comes from Development can be much more pinpointed and much more successful.

Broaden Your Base by Cultivating Giving Capacity

We invest heavily in our established alumni once they become gift prospects. We invest heavily in our students. But we invest little in our relationships with young alumni. 

We need to stop cultivating donors by buttering them up and start cultivating alumni by actually helping them grow as human beings and professionals. If we can increase alumni capacity to give, we can reap the rewards for our institutions.
