I graduated in 1992.  Maybe I would have done something different, but I have donated a little here and there.  When I am ready to give a big bursary amount, I'll be in touch.  Otherwise, I get the Alumni magazine and the Commerce quarterly, but getting pestered is not how I want to remember the school.

They have called us SEVEN times.  I specifically asked them to stop calling yesterday, to take us off whatever god forsaken list we got on and they said we would... and then of course we get called again today!  We'll see if it stops now but who the hell knows.

I urge you to not give any money to these vultures!  I have never had such problems with repeat calls, even with illegal scams.  You suck UBC!

UBC is a horrible university.  The instructors are lousy at teaching and have no "teaching" degrees. Assignments and exams are marked by grad students, who potentially don't have great reading or writing skills themselves. The degree isn't 'more recognized' than a degree elsewhere. What a dump. Please fix your roads, sidewalks, and buildings!
Please STOP begging me for money after taking so much from me to begin with. If I had it my way, I'd give you back my degree in exchange for the money I've spent.

I got a call today around 8pm. He said that he want to discuss about UBC projects because I am an alumni. I asked him to send me email with details as I don't have time to discuss. He reluctantly back off and let me hang up.

Just got in this Monday 9/17/2012 and that number 604-827-4399 called me three times and no message. I am not at UBC or a UBC graduate, so why do I get their calls and why all the hangup calls to everyone. I am going to report it to Telus as that is where I pay all my money to to not be harassed like this. They have called me before but three times on a Monday morning come on people who harass us, stop the damn nonsense.

Telemarketers from UBC calling... I've checked my caller ID records and they have been calling daily. I can't believe that they're calling on a Sunday morning. I've since added the number to my call blocking list.

Just got a call from them as well. I picked up thinking it was the UBC hospital was calling. I should have Googled the number first.

Same deal - the girl chatted about how I was doing since graduation, yada, yada.... I basically told her that my university education did not help me in getting work. I had to take additional schooling at the equivalent cost of double my 4 years at UBC to get the practical knowledge and skills in the current line of work I do.

She still had the nerve to ask for my donation to a program called Humanity 101 - which is a education program for the less privileged.

I ended up having to get from friendly to defensive, giving reasons why I don't believe in such a program. I guess that's the only use my university education came in handy, as a sociology major, I know about all the problems that plague society and how it's a vicious circle. I went on to say that it's ridiculous how an institution like UBC, with all the money that it gets from students, international students as well as corporate donations continue to solicit its poor Arts graduates on an annual basis.

These UBC student telemarketers are very persistent and turn a deaf ear to the words, "No, I'm not interested in supporting this program."  I told her organizations that would do a better job at helping the less fortunate are those on the forefront, like Food Banks and shelters.... not a UBC course.  

Come on, who are we kidding??  These people have trouble paying rent, and if they are going to school, who is going to make the money to pay rent, buy food, etc.?

I will not donate as long as they continue their inhumane, scientifically fallacious experiments on animals! See Stop Vivisection Canada!  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Stop-Vivisection-Canada/105403562830754?v=wall&ref=ts

The call is from UBC Annual Givings.  Like what someone said above, it's ok to receive solicitation from my old school but what's annoying is the small talk that they are trying to make friends with you by random chatting for 20 minutes.  Complete waste of my time...Also, they asked for my address..didn't give them...blocking this number from now on...

same here, have been getting multiple calls from 604 827 4173. i don't recognize the number so i don't answer. they never leave a message. i'm a UBC grad so makes sense it might be fundraising since there's no-one else who would be calling me from this area code... however if indeed it is UBC telemarketing, it's a TERRIBLE way to get any alumni funding!

604-827-4173 is a UBC Gift Fundraising number.  Received two calls from that number, but when we answered there was no one there.

I also have been getting a lot of calls from this number in the past couple weeks. It says Private. There is never any message left. It would make sense that it is the UBC fundraiser as my wife is an alumni and they are horribly insistent (they give us credit card offers!) I Googles this number because it seemed familiar and I thought it might be someone I know but I guess it is just this dumb UBC telemarketing call... I swear, that university is more of a property and money raising institution than a school these days.

I have been receiving a call from this number everyday for the past week, usually around 8pm.  Never answered because it is UBC asking for money.  My phone number is on the do not call list (donotcall.gov) so I file a complaint everytime they call.

If you get calls from this number I recommend you also file complaints (make sure you are on the do not call list first obviously) so that this can be stopped.  Yes, they will go after international callers (so it says in the faq)

don't get on the do-no-call-list. I heard they're just selling the numbers they get from that list to companies, so don't bother. Filing complaints won't do any good if they really are planning to sell them. Not picking up is the best solution.

I got a call from 604-827-4173 today, 11/7/09. the caller is a female, said her name is Joyce, a second year student from China at UBC.She pressed me hard for donation for text books. She said poor students at UBC can not afford text books and Library only has 4 text books to lend out for about 2 hours each. It sounds very strange to me with this kind of pitch for donation. I want to block this phone number. She knows our home address and phone number. I wonder where she got our personal information from? who she really is?

I know a friend who used to work as a ubc fundraiser caller, telling them you don't want to be called isn't enough. You have to say you want to be put on the no call list and not to be contacted for any "charity opportunities". They are legit though they are not trying to scam you. Some of the things they fund raise for are pretty important like funding bursaries and scholarships.
