Why should I give?

As a young alum, you represent ¼ of Mines' alumni base and are critical to ensuring the success of future generations of scientists and engineers. Your participation is vital to sustaining Mines’ reputation and preserving the value of your Mines degree.

 "Mines undoubtedly impacted who I am today. I hope to carry forward Mines’ legacy of excellence to future ’Orediggers by supporting scholarships similar to the one I received as a student."

- Casey Morse ’08, Recipient of the Golden Scholar Award, Young Alumni Chair

 Gifts of all sizes make an impact

All contributions strengthen the university’s ability to cultivate well-rounded leaders who develop smart solutions to transform our future. We understand that you are a recent graduate who is starting a new job, paying off student loans, or making payments on the purchase of a new home. Making a recurring monthly gift to Mines is a convenient and affordable way to provide immediate support to current students. Find out more about the many ways to give to your alma mater.
