Donor Recognition

Dallas Hall Society

Named for Dallas Hall, SMU’s first building and the heart of its academic and intellectual life, Dallas Hall Society recognizes the generosity and foresight of those who are securing SMU’s future. Through planned gifts, its members are committed to making SMU academically strong and financially sound, now and for years to come.


Membership is extended to those who:

  • include SMU as a beneficiary in his or her will or living trust;
  • name SMU as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement plan;
  • name SMU as a beneficiary of a life income gift (a remainder trust, a gift annuity or lead trust); or
  • make a gift of a personal residence or farm to SMU, while retaining a life estate.

SMU honors Dallas Hall Society members with a limited edition print of a painting of Dallas Hall and a certificate of membership. Members are encouraged to visit campus and are invited to special events from time to time.
