We Need You


Personal outreach is one of the most effective fundraising methods at Emory, which makes you one of the most important people in guiding others through the decision to make a gift.

The Emory Advancement Volunteer Network


When you share your Emory experience and why you give back to our community, your authentic voice inspires others to join you. Here are some ways you can be part of the Emory Advancement Volunteer Network (EAVN):

  • fundraise with a personal portfolio
  • support specific causes through crowdfunding
  • serve as an Emory Day of Giving ambassador
  • lead as an alumni advancement chair

Among the benefits of joining this volunteer network, you’ll gain marketing and sales experience, amp up your resume, elevate your sales skills, and learn how to tell compelling stories that drive people to act.

Curious about the programs?

Here is a brief synopsis of each of the fundraising pathways available to you through the EAVN.


Do you love to talk to and meet people?


Through one-to-one outreach, you’ll connect with members of the Emory community from a hand-selected portfolio of contacts. Our team will guide you through the ins and outs of the fundraising platform as well as provide tips and tricks for your conversations.

Do you and your group want to support a specific cause?


Great! You can do just that with Emory’s easy-to-use crowdfunding platform. Momentum does the work for you by automating thank-you emails and tax receipts, and has built-in tools that allow you to amplify your outreach through social media.

The best part—projects receive 100 percent of all gifts. No fees. No commissions.

Are you short on time but big on giving back?


Between family commitments, hobbies, and your 9-5, we know you are running low on time. We’ve created a volunteer fundraising opportunity that does not require a huge time commitment on your end.

You tell us your preferred fundraising causes, and we’ll create a pre-populated form for you. You can take that form and push it out on your social media accounts, text it to your friends, or email it to your contacts.

Are you looking for a one-day volunteer opportunity?


Emory Day of Giving is an annual 24-hour event that brings the Emory community together to raise money for a variety of areas across the university. Even though it’s only a day, you’ll be able to tap into your competitive side with challenges, dollar-for-dollar matches, and other fun activities that will keep you engaged all day.

We will provide you with an Emory Day of Giving toolkit that includes sample messages and graphics, making it even easier for you to spread the word and rally your friends.

Do you want to grow volunteer fundraising participation within your network?


This is your chance to lead. By serving as an EAVN chair, you recruit and guide other volunteers as part of a regional or personal network. You’ll learn from Emory leadership, fundraising experts, and academic experts who will provide you with the tools and support you need to build awareness of causes that matter to you.
