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.

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.
