2018 SMSU YA Challenge

Your Gift Matters!


Help Your Class Win the Young Alumni Giving Challenge

The Young Alumni Giving Challenge is a way for recent SMSU graduates to support current Mustang students, faculty, programs and projects.

Here's how it works:

  • Any graduate from the last five years (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017) is part of the challenge.

  • Donate ANY amount, for ANY purpose to boost your class giving percentage.

  • Class with the top giving percentage as of December 31, 2018, wins the challenge.

Congratulations Class of 2016! You are champions of the 2018 Young Alumni Giving Challenge. The Class of '16 had the highest percentage of class members donate in 2018--4.8%.

Nearly 120 young alumni, including grads from the Class of 2018, made a donation to SMSU in 2018. THANK YOU for giving back to Southwest!


Staying Connected with SMSU

We'll also be trying to connect with as many recent grads as possible during our SMSU Alumni Phonathon. Look for a call from one of our student callers. They will be calling from the SMSU Call Center number 507.537.7357.

When you confirm or update your contact information through the Alumni Phonathon, online at or by calling the SMSU Foundation office (800.260.0970), you'll earn points towards the chance to win one of these three prizes in a random drawing.
