    ISU Foundation

    I swear if they call me 1 more time asking for more money after I have already given, I am going to be done with all donations to ISU.

    UGH!

    sorry for the rant.

    I updated my phone number with them, 867-5309, and surprisingly don't get any more calls.

    Re: ISU Foundation

    Are you sure you are actually giving something?

    I'm a member of the AA and CC, and I probably get one call a year from them...

    That's why I have Caller ID. I don't answer "Out of Area". The only time I talk to them, or most telemarketers, is when one of the kids answers by mistake.

    ISU Directory Pitch

    I got a postcard in the mail yesterday from the ISU Foundation to confirm my contact information. Thought it was strange since:
    1) If I'm going to recieve a postcard- they probably got the right info.
    2) The College of Business called and I spoke with someone less than a month ago about donating.
    3) As a NCC member- they have my info.

    After confirming my adddress, employer & phone #'s. They go into a sell job about ordering an ISU directory and getting trip vouchers for something like $300. When I said not interested- they pitched the printed directory for around $45.

    Now with with the ISU Alumni Association online directory- why do I need a book? I'm sure ISU is getting a cut on all purchaes, but with all the other requests from ISU for donations- why use a fundraising vehicle thats a little backhanded?

    The person on the phone was respectful and polite, but I'm not a big fan of solicitations where the true purpose isn't disclosed until the end.

    No crap. I wish Iowa State would just quite trying to raise money period. They should have enough already. Why not ask the students for money...they actually go there still.

    Eh. Its not a big deal to just say 'hey, not interested'. If you dont ask for money, you're never gonna get it, and its a good cause.
