SMU Alumni Community Fund

$322,223.88 of $500,000 raised.

as of 21 December 2019.

Since the founding of SMU in 2000, the ethos of contributing back to society has always been part of SMU’s DNA, nurturing students with empathy and a heart to make a difference for society, wherever their paths may take them after graduation.

To create opportunities for alumni to come together as a collective network to support the University's vision, foster greater bonds amongst fellow alumni and all well-wishers to support the less privileged student community, we invite all alumni to make a contribution towards SMU Alumni Community Fund.

With your every donation, we are a step closer to imagine the world of possibilities that paying it forward can bring in shaping our university better. The fund will support:

  • Bursary for needy SMU students
  • SMU Mentoring Programme
  • Community Service initiatives by Alumni Groups and student groups
  • Alumni volunteerism

Paying it forward is a hallmark of SMU’s education and we invite all alumni to join us in the first-ever SMU alumni's university-wide fundraising initiative with and for the community.


We are inviting SMU alumni entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs and family business owners to join us in pioneering a landmark project called Imagine Better Companies for SMU's 20th anniversary around the SMU Alumni Community Fund.

The project will engage current students and alumni experts in collecting and crafting stories that will celebrate 100 alumni who are imagining a better future through their work. Along with their stories, alumni are encouraged to make a gift in support of the SMU Alumni Community Fund. These collective stories will be encapsulated in an interactive, hardcover coffee table book and also a business directory that will detail the flavour of the featured alumni’s impact. A cinematic short-film around the making of this book will also be featured on SMU channels for the 20th anniversary celebrations.
