Students are a vital part of SMU’s culture of philanthropy. During SMU Giving Day 2021, 450 students gave nearly $20,000 in just one day. More than 80 student organizations participated. Champions of each organization seized the opportunity to shine a spotlight on their favorite campus causes. For example, a Greek Life competition received more than 2,000 gifts, because, in addition to chapter members donating, they rallied their friends, family and chapter alumni to give too. That’s just one way that SMU Mustangs are thinking big and doing good on the Hilltop and beyond.
