Leave Your Mark 2019


Every year, on the occasion 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 alleviating the financial pressure of students in need, and help make their SMU journey a positive and meaningful one.

In 2018, the graduating class, together with their parents and the SMU community, raised close to $60,000 in support of 7 students with financial assistance in their education journey.
