Investment Objectives

The South Dakota Mines CARA assets are being closely monitored with moderate growth and management of risk as primary goals. Investment returns are sought from both market appreciation and from dividends and interest. The portfolio is diversified between fixed income and equity holdings. The objective is to provide a predictable stream of income while allowing the growth of the principal to meet or outpace the rate of inflation. An appointed investment committee oversees our professional management team. SD Mines Foundation Investment Policy

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.
