Contributions from undergraduate alumni advance SMU in two important ways.
First, alumni gifts add up to make a huge impact. In the last fiscal year, thousands of alumni contributed more than $25 million dollars in current-use gifts alone. It would take over $500 million in extra endowment funds to generate the same level of funding for these projects in a single year. These gifts provided an immediate impact on current students and faculty, jumpstarting SMU’s second century of achievement.
Second, as more alumni participate in the giving effort every year, our rate of alumni giving grows. This giving percentage directly influences our national rankings each year in publications such as U.S. News & World Report. This list reveals the strength of alumni support to prospective students, faculty and grant-providing entities. Your consistent giving every year demonstrates that you stand behind SMU’s commitment to shape world changers every day.
Your gift today will help us reach our alumni goal of $27,500,000 in current-use funds for this fiscal year, which ends May 31. Setting up your gift to renew annually will ensure that we can count on your support and will help us achieve a strong alumni participation rate to report to U.S. News & World Report next year.
