Red PerunaDon’t forget to make your gift to SMU’s Campaign for Faculty and Staff by New Year’s Eve – and join more than 1,000 faculty and staff who have already shown their support of SMU by making a gift this academic year. The IRS deadline is Dec. 31 for making charitable donations that are tax-deductible for 2010.

Thirteen of the campaign’s 15 areas are seeking progress toward their participation targets before the tax year ends. The Offices of the President and Legal Affairs have met their goals of 100% participation. Visit the Faculty and Staff giving site to see the progress each school and division has made toward the 2010-11 donor goals.

Donors may choose the school, department or program that will benefit from their contribution, and gifts to the President’s Partners program count toward The Second Century Campaign goals. You’ll also receive a running Peruna with your name on it, posted to the Faculty/Staff Donors page.
