About the Mustang Club
At SMU, the education of our student-athletes is at the core of our mission.

Established in 1935, the Mustang Club provides the opportunity for the supporters of SMU Athletics to show their commitment and invest in our student-athletes. With an average investment of $128,835 per student-athlete, your support is crucial to helping each one reach their full academic, athletic, and social potential. Their success begins with you.

Why Support the Mustang Club?
Besides the impact of your gift on SMU student-athletes and an appreciation for the University and its image on both the local and national level, a donation to the Mustang Club represents an investment in the development of the next generation of talented leaders. Mustang Club donors can be confident that their “investment with impact” will have lasting effects for the young men and women that represent SMU. The benefits extend beyond knowing that you are helping SMU Athletics in our mission of Shaping Champions. A Mustang Club gift also offers opportunities for fellowship and social engagement with other fans. There are also tangible benefits associated with your donation, and many donation levels come with a tax benefit (consult your tax advisor for specific details). In today’s competitive intercollegiate athletic environment, resources are precious and acquisition is competitive. Mustang Club gifts are invested directly back into our 17 sports programs, providing our coaches an edge in improving the competitive environment of their program – whether it is enhanced recruiting efforts, increased operational dollars for team travel and equipment, or other identified program needs. In order to keep pace with other institutions we compete with for elite status, the need to maintain, upgrade, and/or expand our athletic footprint is crucial. Without Mustang Club donations, these opportunities are not possible.
