A nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the SMU Mustang Band!
The Hub of SMU Spirit
The Best-Dressed Band in the Land
Welcome To The Diamond M Club!
The Diamond M Club celebrates and supports the all-volunteer SMU Mustang Band, famously known as both "The Hub of SMU Spirit" and "The Best Dressed Band in the Land."
Club dues and donations from members like you pay for Mustang Band uniforms, game-day meals, away-game transportation, and instruments. The main purpose of the Diamond M Club, however, is to raise money for student scholarships. At the end of each fiscal year, a portion of all funds is added to a special SMU scholarship endowment account.
Diamond M Club membership is not limited to Mustang Band alumni. Anyone who enjoys the Mustang Band - SMU parents, campus staff, sports fans - can join.
The Club by-laws outline three organizational goals that seek to "provide for the support and advancement" of the Mustang Band:
* Develop, enhance, and maintain an endowed scholarship fund for the Mustang Band
* Promote fellowship among current band members, alumni, and supporters of the Mustang Band
* Disseminate information to the Diamond M Club membership
The organization began in 1970 as the Mustang Band Alumni Association, but reorganized itself in 1985 under the Diamond M Club name.
The Club, a non-profit fundraising organization, is operated through the SMU Office of Development and managed by a board of directors elected by the membership. Board members serve two-year terms and meet once a month.
