Give To Mines

Empowering YOUR Pursuit of Excellence

As we confront the greatest challenges of our time — from energy independence to issues impacting human health — the need for far-sighted, agile, and influential leaders in science and engineering has never been so great. That’s why, here, the value of an investment isn’t determined by a financial equation, but by its impact on students’ lives.

Our donors’ generosity hires new faculty who deliver transformative education through smaller classes and greater possibilities. It provides scholarships that erase barriers to opportunity and place the highest-quality of education within everyone’s reach. It’s the knowledge and expertise of our alumni who move revolutionary ideas from the halls of academia to real-world application and partnerships that propel our research enterprise onto a global stage.

There are many ways to support the School of Mines

One meaningful way is through financial support.  Gifts can be made through the SDSM&T Foundation, to the School of Mines Alumni Association to help with student recruiting and other great projects, and to the Hardrock Club to support our great Mines athletics tradition and movement to NCAA Division II. Your ability to give is just a CLICK below to make a difference:
