The SMU Athletic department has reached a new fundraising record of more than $5.3 million in annual gifts this past year. The previous record was set in fiscal year 2009 when SMU garnered nearly $4.5 million.
Including capital and other gifts, SMU received more than $9 million in fiscal year 2010.
According to Assistant Director of Media Relations Brad Sutton, "the funds will be used for operations, capital projects and other expenditures."
In the past two years, the annual giving has increased by 59 percent. SMU attributes this increase to the arrival of coach June Jones in 2008, field improvement, the hard working development staff and Mustang Club volunteers.
