Leave Your Mark Campaign 2019

 

Every year, on the occassion of Commencement, an appeal is sent to the graduating cohort to make their first gift towards SMU. 100% of the amount raised will go towards financial aid for students in need, to help alleviate the financial pressure of the recipients and their families, making their SMU journey a positive and meaningful one. Last year, the Class of 2018, together with their parents and the SMU community, raised over $58,000 to support 7 financially challenged students.

WHAT IS LEAVE YOUR MARK?

  • With a gift of $100 and above, donors from Class of 2019 can leave an inspiring message, a thank-you note or a fun quote on a plaque to be installed at the Seminar Rooms, where friendships are forged and ideas are exchanged throughout your SMU days. 
  • Take part in this fun and meaningful activity today with your peers by filling up the form below.

For postgraduate Class of 2019, please contact Ms Sarah Tan (sarahtan@smu.edu.sg) and Ms Sun Peiyi (pysun@smu.edu.sg) to find out about a collective gift plaque.
