PHONE BANK CALLERS!

This is our most important volunteer opportunity! If you are looking to make a real difference in the schools, sign up to be a caller during our annual fund drive phone bank. You will not be "cold calling," but will be calling folks who ALREADY are loyal ASF donors or are the parents of Ashland students and asking them for their support.  This group effort is fun - with food, refreshments and lots of camaraderie.  It's a great feeling to hear all the wonderful things our donors have to say about the important work the ASF does in our schools.

 
When is it? – When are the dedicated school nights (the nights each school works to get their volunteers at the phone bank)?

Fundraising
Each spring the Ashland Schools Foundation holds it's annual fund drive.  An important part of the fund drive is the phone campaign - calling previous donors or current parent's of school-age children and asking them for their support.  This group effort is fun - with food, refreshments and lots of camaraderie.  It's a great feeling to hear all the wonderful things our donors have to say about the important work the ASF does in our schools.
