Supporting the Women & LGBT Center

Rosie the Riveter

Since the 1973, the Women & LGBT Center has been a voice for women and our LGBT community on campus.  Offering preeminent programs, student focused activities, and gender centered organizations to join, along with a lending library, lactation station, and nap-worthy couches, we have connected with many SMU students, staff, faculty, and alumni.  We are thankful for the many financial and in kind donations that we have received over the years.  With your support, we are able to continue and expand our important work. In fact, your support is an important symbol of the way our services are valued.

If you would like to make an online donation, you can do so by using the button below.

Some of our loyal donors have asked us what kind of In Kind gifts we might best utilize.  They have inspired us to come up with our Wish List.  We had fun talking with students and staff to figure out what things we use most and need most in the center.  Below is a list of some items.  For books you can look at our amazon wishlist
