Commemorating your reunion with a gift to SMU is an important way your class can help your alma mater provide scholarship support to students, increase faculty excellence and enhance the campus experience for generations to come.
In 2013, 25% of all fall reunion-year alumni showed their pride by making a gift to SMU in honor of their reunion. Last spring, the class of 1964 set a new single-class record with 44% participation to honor their 50-year reunion. This year, the classes of 1969, 1974, 1979, 1984, 1989, 1994, 1999, 2004 and 2009 have their opportunity to Join the Stampede and set new records this fall.
To coincide with the two alumni participation goals set by the Second Century Campaign, your reunion goal is based on participation rather than revenue. You can choose to contribute any amount to any area of SMU you are passionate about: student scholarships, athletics, Meadows Museum, specific school departments, and your favorite student organization are just a few examples. All gifts made from January 1 – December 31, 2014 count towards your class goal and help the University accomplish the priorities set forth by SMU’s Second Century Campaign. To Join the Stampede, give now.
Giving results for each reunion class will be presented to the entire SMU community during the Homecoming football game on November 15. For more information on your class-specific goals and reunion-year giving, visit smu.edu/reunion.
