To the SMU schools, units, and the entire SMU family,

On March 8, Mustangs around the world—alumni, students, parents, friends, faculty and staff—will come together for Mustangs Give Back, a 24-hour online fundraising event. Support the schools, programs, and causes that are important to you, help them earn matching funds, and foster achievement in research, scholarship, art and athletics.

We need your help to make this year’s event a success!

  • Below, please find sample social media posts, social media images, and email templates that can help you promote Mustangs Give Back to your friends and constituents.
  • On March 8, 2018, the Office of Annual Giving will be headquartered at the flagpole on the main quad for the day! This is a great opportunity for you to stop by and market your project to students, faculty, staff, and alumni.
  • For answers to any questions, please contact Lindsay Graham at 214-768-3061.

Thank you!
