A beneficiary designation is an easy way to give through your IRA, bank account or life insurance. In addition to the  "traditional" bequests of a a will or trust, you can use other beneficiary designations to support South Dakota Mines. Just complete a beneficiary designation form provided by your account administrator. Benefits include:

  • the assets you give will not go through costly and time-consuming probate process
  • your estate will receive a charitable deduction, if you have a taxable estate, which saves on estate taxes
  • you can change or revoke beneficiary designations at any time

Many companies, from large to small, local to national, have matching gift programs. When you make a gift, please check with your personnel office to see if your company has a matching gifts program. Get the matching gift form and follow the directions for matching, doubling or even tripling your gift.

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.
