The annual Phonathon campaign is a vital source of funding for scholarships and programs provided by Minnesota State University Moorhead. Traditionally, a team of 20 or more students known as “Dragon Callers” reach out personally to tens of thousands of MSUM alumni with a phone call. While engaging with alumni, they share news from campus, update essential contact information, and ask for support in the form of a financial gift.

Now more than ever, students need our support. Unfortunately, certain restrictions due to COVID-19 prevents us from managing a fully staffed call center. Though some students will continue to call and steward alumni, we are partnering with a philanthropic organization, Ruffalo Noel Levitz, to help with our fundraising efforts. If you see our name or logo pop up on your phone, know that’s us and our partners trying to reach you! If you prefer an MSUM student to call you – you can make that request by simply emailing

Thank you for answering the call to help fellow Dragons.

With grit, heart, and humility,
The MSUM Foundation
