As the foundation of philanthropy at South Dakota Mines, the Mines Advancement Fund ensures the Center for Alumni Relations and Advancement remains the focal point of giving, engagement, and alma mater pride.

Every gift to the Mines Advancement Fund results in a direct investment in the success of students, staff, and faculty by providing CARA the resources to secure and steward all gifts from alumni, friends, and corporations. Your donation to the Mines Advancement Fund goes farther in creating a pathway to education for deserving, motivated students.

The Mines Advancement Fund also allows CARA to be the bridge between the university and our global alumni community, ensuring the continuation of alumni-focused publications and the expansion of class reunions, networking and professional development opportunities, and chapter gatherings across the country.

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
