Extreme Madness

eXtreme Madness returns in 2023! Classes from 1945 to 2022 will compete in our alumni giving tournament. A postcard announcing the contest will be mailed in mid-February to alumni who haven't make a gift since the start of our fiscal year on July 1. Alumni Phonathon will help us promote the school's Annual Fund which supports need-based scholarships. The eXtreme Madness tournament adds some excitement as classes compete against each other. The class with the highest point total at the end of March 31 wins the championship. All Classes start with a point total based on class giving percentage.

Scoring: Earn points for each Phonathon volunteer (10 pts per volunteer) or each gift from a classmate (2 pts). Bonus points are scored when your classmate increases his previous gift or donates for the first time. For Alumni Phonathon, the Classes of 1963 through 2017 will pick a calling session and recruit six volunteers. When your classmates donate, your class earns points. Volunteers can also score points for your class if they call non-classmates and secure a gift (2 points per gift).

All calling will take place at St. X. Chili and salad will be served. We have NINE calling sessions. All shifts are 5:30-8:30 p.m. except Sun. March 5 which is 1:30-4:30 p.m. The Parlance software will be used. All volunteers can choose to call by phone or use the software to send a text message. St. X will have computers or you may bring a laptop. No credit cards will be collected.

Brackets: Classes will be randomly assigned to one of four brackets. The class with the most points in each bracket advances to the Top Four. Then points reset to the newest class giving percentage. A 2-day showdown occurs March 30-31 between the Top Four. Earn additional points with gifts and the champion will be crowned April 3.

Incentives: Class Agents still receive incentives for caller recruitment. Recruit six volunteers (including yourself) and you'll earn one golf outing registration, or two hospitality suite admissions to a home football game. Plus, six volunteers equals 60 points earned for your class!
