Million Dollar M Climb


Thanks to your generosity, you've helped unlock an extra $1 million for Mines! More than 3,000 donors have made gifts this year alone, releasing the $1M gift pledged by Howard and Cherine Janzen and Jerry and Karen Zink. Pictured below is donor #3,000, Bradley Knepper '98. When asked about being the donor that put the campaign over the top, he exemplified the attitude that makes Mines such a special community.

"I owe much of my success to the dedicated professionals who make Mines a brand known across the globe. It is my pleasure to give back in some small way to help assure that students will continue to have an opportunity to benefit from a Mines education."

The #unlock1million challenge has shown that gifts of any size make a significant, long-lasting impact on Mines. When Orediggers from around the world work together, we can accomplish great things!

Despite reaching the summit, Mines will never be done climbing. Learn more about the ways to give to Mines, or make a gift today.
