Help our class create the Class of 1966 Endowed Student Scholarship
In honor of our 50-year reunion, our committee hopes to raise $100,000 to establish the Class of 1966 Endowed Student Scholarship to be awarded to future generations of deserving SMU students. This will be the first scholarship endowed by any 50-year reunion class. Together, we can make history.
We hope you will consider a gift of any size to support this effort. Last year, the class of 1965 inspired 45% of their classmates to give during their reunion year. This year it's our turn!
To join us, make your gift here.
Why Should I Give?
- An annual gift of any size each and every year indicates an alumni’s vote of confidence and symbolizes their inspired gratitude for their experience at SMU.
- An endowed scholarship will ensure future generations will benefit from our generosity. This gift will live on for generations to come!
- The annual giving rate is a part of the formula to determine school ranking in publications such as U.S. News and World Report. A high ranking helps SMU attract the best and brightest students and faculty and showcases our pride for our alma mater to the world.
- Some foundations and other grant-making organizations look at the number of gifts rather than dollar amounts when determining grant requests. Your gift could help SMU secure thousands of dollars in funding.
If you have already made a gift this year, we thank you! Your participation matters.
