Dwight Hall Phonathon
Welcome to a new semester of Phonathon, Dwight Hall member groups!
Phonathon is a year-long fundraising campaign to support community service and social justice efforts at Yale. The money we raise goes directly to student groups likes yours and all of the good work you do throughout the year.
Each semester, Dwight Hall groups are required to complete 4 service hours of Phonathon (8 total hours per school year). For Fall 2013, there will be two ways to fulfill your requirement: Traditional Phonathon and Great Big Phonathon. Read the descriptions carefully, talk it over with your members, and choose the option that makes the most sense for your group.
Traditional Phonathon takes place throughout the semester on Mondays through Thursdays from 7 pm to 9 pm in the Dwight Hall Lounge. Each representative from your group must attend a session of at least one hour long. No half-hour sessions are allowed.

Great Big Phonathon
Great Big Phonathon is a large-scale and high-energy Phonathon in which multiple groups participate to complete their Phonathon hours. Great Big Phonathon is held on a Saturday from noon and 3 pm. Representatives will make calls on their personal cell phones. For Fall 2013, Great Big Phonathon will be held on October 19 and November 16. Like Traditional Phonathon, each representative must attend a session of at least one hour long.
- Training sessions will be held regularly on the hour: 12pm, 1pm, 2pm.
- There will be additional training sessions on the 15-minute mark as well.
Great Big Phonathon Sign-Up
If your group has been notified that it is frozen: Your group is required to complete 8 hours this semester (4 from the previous semester and 4 for the current semester). You can participate in one or both types of Phonathons to complete your hours. While you are frozen, you cannot reserve rooms, make copies, borrow cars, receive funding, etc. Make sure to complete all of your hours so that you can regain access to Dwight Hall resources as quickly as possible!
If your group has leftover hours from a previous semester: You must complete any remaining hours from previous semesters during the current semester, in addition to the 4 hours required for the current semester. You should have been notified of your Phonathon status by a Member Group Coordinator or a Phonathon Coordinator. If you are unsure of your status, email email@example.com immediately and we will inform you of the number of hours your group needs to complete to remain in good standing.
