Become an Annual Fund Volunteer

The work of our volunteers, from class agents to our executive committee, is critical to advancing our mission “to prepare the most capable and faithful for the most responsible positions and the most difficult service.” Our volunteers help strengthen the student experience and keep Thayer School of Engineering a place of innovation, creativity, and ingenuity.

Ways to Volunteer


”Volunteering my time is fulfilling, and I enjoy working with the many people who feel as I do about the value of a Thayer education.”

—Benton C. Routh ’86 Th’86 ’87, Annual Fund Chair

Class Agents

Class Agents play an important role in stewarding classmates and friends for a lifetime of giving. Each Class Agent builds relationships with 10-15 assigned classmates or engineering colleagues through phone calls or emails throughout the year. Other duties include:

  • Providing leadership by example through an annual gift or pledge made early in the fiscal year.
  • Advising Thayer's Advancement team on solicitation assignments and helps to identify new volunteer prospects.
  • Regularly sharing current Thayer news with classmates and colleagues assigned to you as Class Agent.
