The Athletics Fund for Immediate Needs (AFIN) is an operational fund created to help offset the loss of revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In a typical year, Mustang Athletics is funded through several sources, including ticket sales, sponsorships, Boulevard sales and more. Due to operational changes in response to COVID-19, the SMU athletics department anticipates a $7.5 million budget deficit.
A gift to the Athletics Fund for Immediate Needs on top of your current philanthropy will help fund departmental operations and provide aid to 17 varsity sports. Mustang Athletics is a vital part of the SMU culture, building community, attracting resources, enriching the campus environment and raising the overall University reputation.
Despite the unprecedented financial challenges this year, we know the strength of the Mustang community will hold true.
