Every day is a new opportunity to make things better than they were the day before.
The outpouring of generosity and support for students financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic is inspiring. Students have continued to thrive in their studies, adapting to a new normal of on campus and remote learning. However, many will face stressors such as financial uncertainty or unexpected income loss.
In order to help financially impacted students, SMU seeks continued support for the Presidential Fund for Immediate Needs.
This spring SMU launched the Presidential Fund for Immediate Needs to address the evolving ramifications of the pandemic, including emergency financial support for students. The current economy has made off-campus jobs more difficult to find for students who rely on them. And SMU staff are noticing an increasing number of requests for aid that far exceeds the support they’ve awarded in previous years.
Please consider giving a gift of any size to the Presidential Fund for Immediate Needs today.
Your gift will provide resources for students facing difficult situations and is an opportunity for friends and supporters to help the SMU community weather this storm and any challenges that may present themselves in the future.
Thank you in advance for helping make a collective difference. Together we can keep young Mustangs in class, which means making our world, and SMU, a better place right now and for generations to come.
