Donor Recognition

President's Associates

Each year SMU gratefully recognizes the President's Associates, a select group of SMU supporters who contribute cumulatively $1,000 or more to any area of the University during our fiscal year June 1 – May 31. President's Associates share a clear vision for the future of SMU and are committed to making a difference in the lives of its students.

Through their generosity, President's Associates demonstrate a deep commitment to the University and help ensure that SMU will continue to provide an outstanding educational experience. An annual testament to SMU's momentum, their gifts support the University's continuing rise in quality.
