Leave Your Mark Gift a quote, etched on campus. A legacy for generations to come.

The Leave Your Mark campaign is an opportunity for fresh graduates to make their very first gift towards their alma mater by sharing a meaningful quote together with a donation to support the SMU Bursary Fund.

How it works

22._Farhan_Yusoff - (edited)-min

With a gift of $20 per month (over a period of 6 months; or one-time gift of $120), contributing alumni will have their quotes engraved on commemorative plaques bearing their name, degree programme, and year of graduation. These will be permanently installed on tables in seminar rooms throughout campus for future generations of SMU students to ‘hear’ words of wisdom from proud graduates.



Your Gift Impact            
Your contribution will allow financially challenged students to experience an enriching academic life at SMU, and you will leave a legacy for generations to come with your quote etched on campus. 

Every qualifying donation will enjoy 2.5 times tax deductions made from 1 January 2016 to 31 December 2026. In addition, your gift will be matched by Tote Board, amplifying your impact and contribution.
