Alumni Participation Counts

Every gift – no matter the amount – to the School of Media and Communication is critically important and makes a direct impact on our educational mission.  If you already support SMC, thank you!  If not, please consider helping us reach our participation goal by making a gift today.

The Annual Fund

Making a gift for the School of Media and Communication Annual Fund is a simple yet powerful way to support the school by providing crucial resources for SMC’s most pressing needs.  Your gift will have an immediate impact on our educational programs, our students and our faculty.  Gifts at every level are significant and you will join a community of more than 1,500 alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff friends and corporate and foundation partners already giving back each.

You may personalize the impact of your gift by supporting the program of your choice: AdvertisingCommunication Studies; JournalismMedia Studies and Production; or Strategic Communication.

The Scholarship Fund

Sixty percent of all incoming freshman and 69 percent of all full-time students at Temple require financial aid to complete their studies. Support for SMC’s Scholarship Fund ensures our best and brightest can continue their Temple education. This past year, more than $15,000 in direct support was awarded to our talented and deserving students from the SMC Scholarship Fund.

Matching Gifts

The impact of your gift may be doubled or even tripled – many companies recognize employee giving by matching their employee’s charitable gifts. Try our matching gift search to see if your company participates.

SMC Dean’s Circle

To show our appreciation for donors who support the school annually for three or more consecutive years, SMC invites our most loyal supporters to become members of the Dean’s Circle. Members receive special recognition in the Intercom newsletter and an invitation to attend an annual event hosted by the SMC Dean and the Dean’s Circle chair.

Temple University Russell H. Conwell Society

Donors making leadership gifts of $1,000 or more become members of the Conwell Society, our most prestigious donor recognition club. Named in honor of Temple’s founder and first president, the Conwell Society recognizes our key partners whose financial support strengthens our mission of providing a quality education with superior teaching and research. Conwell donors are thanked in the Intercom newsletter and are invited to a very special University-wide recognition event each year.
