Meet the Teams
The Bradley Fund Phone A Thon program hires Bradley students to raise money for the University. We phone alumni, parents and friends of Bradley and update their contact information, tell them what’s happening on campus, and secure gifts for the University.
The Bradley Fund Phone a Thon is one large family! The student callers are led by the Bradley Fund Intern team. The BFund calling room has been described as the best job on campus! We emphasize team work and goal setting. It’s great to be able to reach alumni and talk about their lives and their experiences at Bradley.
You are always welcome to drop in and see how things are going in the Bradley Fund Phone room!

Team Leader: Jessica Molina
“I love the BFund because there are so many different people to get to know who are involved in so many different things on campus. It is a great way to get to know other students and be involved with campus events!”
Team Leader: Abigail Henderson
“I love the Bradley Fund because it is a warm welcoming place where everyone can feel comfortable learning, growing, and gaining professional skills.”
Team Leader: Sam Niederman
“If I listed every reason I love the BFund, I would be writing a novel. My two absolute favorite things about the Bradley Fund are the people and the impact I am making. The people that I work with are so genuine and caring. They are willing to go above and beyond for each other and cheer for each other when we get pledges. I come to work when I am not supposed to, just so I can spend time with my coworkers. I also love the impact I make. As a senior, I know my time here is coming to an end and I want to do as much as I can for the school that has done so much for me. One of the best ways I feel I can give back to the school is to help raise money. By raising money I know I am not only bettering my education but bettering the education of thousands of others.”
Team Leader: Guadalupe Paniagua
“The Bradley Fund provides more than a job for students. It's a place to make connections and relationships with other students outside your major and culture. It's an environment that allows everyone to work together and makes everyone feel welcomed. I wouldn't want to devote my time to any other on campus job besides the B Fund!”
Team Leader: Joe Sedlacko
"I think the Bradley Fund is a great way to talk to alumni and hear about Bradley from their perspective!"
Team Leader: Kaylynn Sims
“The Bradley Fund fundraises not only for the university, but for the students that attend the university. The scholarships that we receive from alumni could not be more appreciated. On its own, the university would not be able to provide all students with the extra help that they may need to attend Bradley. By bringing in those scholarships, we ensure that there are going to be more great minds here at Bradley. The more scholarships that are able to go to students, the larger group of diverse minds that can become additions here on campus.”
Team Leader: Rachel Burba
“The Bradley Fund not only helped my communication skills grow immensely, but also allowed me to connect with alumni. The alumni know the reality of graduating from the university, which allows me to ask them for advice. Working at the Bradley Fund has been extremely beneficial.”
