Ohio University


Ohio University’s Phonathon Program is a part of University Advancement and encourages a culture of philanthropy by connecting OHIO alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends to the University through one-on-one conversations.

Anyone receiving a call from the Ohio University Phonathon will see the number 740.593.4500.

Callers reach out to members of the University community to raise awareness of OHIO’s achievements, update their information, and encourage them to show their commitment to the OHIO’s mission through financial support.

The Phone-a-Thon

The Phone-a-Thon is a mockumentary written and produced in the tradition of "The Office," that followed the social, emotional and professional ups and downs of OHIO seniors working as callers at the Ohio University Phone-a-Thon during the 2009-10 academic year.
