Mines Advancement Fund

As the foundation of philanthropy at South Dakota Mines, the Mines Advancement Fund ensures the Center for Alumni Relations & Advancement (CARA) remains the focal point of giving, engagement, and alma mater pride. 
 
With every dollar gifted to the Mines Advancement Fund, CARA’s development team will raise an average of $9 more to support departments, scholarships, and programs. This is the sort of focus, efficiency, and mission-driven mindset that results in South Dakota Mines’ reputation for excellence.
 
Consider designating your gift to the Mines Advancement Fund to maximize your influence at South Dakota Mines. For more information, contact Lucas Lund, Annual Giving Director, at lucas.lund@sdsmt.edu.
