SMU donors inspire more bright minds to think big and do good. They create greater equity in education, innovative programs and research with impact. Donors help empower Mustangs to push through boundaries and affect positive change on the Hilltop and beyond. Tuition only covers approximately 70% of the cost of an SMU education. Donations provide vital support that fuels the SMU experience in the classroom and beyond.
Being the first
A pillar of the SMU Ignited campaign is to empower outstanding students regardless of their financial means and make the SMU experience possible for all high-achieving, future world changers.
Empower the next generation
“SMU made me feel like the world was my oyster and that helped encourage me to dream big,” said Stephen Reiff ’10. “When I give to SMU, I am helping empower the next generation of leaders and strengthening the brand of SMU to the world.”
When you give to SMU, you shape people and programs who are changing the world today – and you invest in a new generation of world changers. SMU donors power the University’s rise in impact and national prominence – and they secure the foundation for even more ambitious efforts in the decades ahead.
