The most impactful product improvements at GetThru have often been sparked by customer feedback, and GetThru is a place where customer voices are heard and valued. The Advisory Board is the voice of our customers and will cultivate a vibrant community where knowledge-sharing and collaboration thrive.

The Advisory Board intends to meet semi-annually, along with key members of GetThru leadership. GetThru is fortunate to have such an illustrious group of thought leaders from many top educational institutions, and this board will ensure that we’re meeting the needs of our customers to provide a world-class experience with our products. Just as importantly, these meetings will allow our customers to share innovative strategies, creative campaign ideas, what’s working for them, lessons learned, and more.

Thanks to our Higher Education Customer Advisory Board members, GetThru can continue to innovate solutions that matter, and we look forward to continuing to work together to shape the future of digital alumni and donor engagement.


The Get Thru Team

GetThru was created by veterans of Bernie 2016, where we helped build the campaign’s historic voter contact operation. In the process, we saw the need for better technology for large scale 1-to-1 communication that reaches people where they are—on their cell phones.
