Presidential Fund for Immediate Needs

The outpouring of generosity and support for students financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic is inspiring. Students have continued to thrive in their studies, adapting to a new normal of on-campus and remote learning. However, many will face stressors such as financial uncertainty or unexpected income loss.

Please consider giving a gift of any size to the Presidential Fund for Immediate Needs today. Your gift will provide resources for students facing difficult situations and is an opportunity for friends and supporters to help the SMU community weather this storm and any challenges that may present themselves in the future. Together we can keep young Mustangs in class, which means making our world, and SMU, a better place right now and for generations to come.

Your Giving at Work

Support the SMU Fund

When you join the Pony Power stampede and invest in the SMU Fund, you can direct your support to the entire University – to SMU’s greatest needs, to scholarships or to faculty – to the highest priorities of a school or the libraries, or to campus experiences through Athletics or Student Affairs. Your gift to the SMU Fund makes an immediate impact and helps every school and unit address the University’s strategic priorities.

Support the Mustang Club

Your gift to the Mustang Club provides SMU Athletics with the tools to support our 424 talented student-athletes that compete in 17 Division I sports programs to be nationally competitive in their academic and athletic endeavors. Gifts to the Mustang Club provide everything from the education and academic support of our student-athletes, to athletic equipment, health care, and life skills training, all of which are part of their world-class education at SMU.
