Why Give?

R. Gerald TurnerThis is a momentous time in SMUís history. As we approach the centennial of SMUís founding, in 2011, and our opening, in 2015, the future is calling SMU to become even more important than perhaps our founders ever imagined.

Thank you for your support. It has never been more important.

Every dollar you give supports our strategic plan to strengthen the unique SMU experience. That means more support for student scholarships, our excellent faculty, academic programs, and campus life.

Support from alumni, parents and friends like you reflects the strength of our institution, as well as the success of our 100,000 graduates who circle the globe today.

Whether you give to your specific school or to the general SMU Fund, we invite you to join us in building a new century of achievement, educating leaders for the next 100 years.
