iDigMines Spring 2021

#iDigMines Giving Day is 24 hours for OreGivers across the globe to join the tradition of sharing their time, talent, and treasure to make an impact for the causes they dig the most. This year, Tim ’87 and Mary Haddon, will be matching gifts to the Department of Mining Engineering; the first $12,500 will be matched $2:$1 by the Haddons. So for every dollar you donate, Tim and Mary will match it with two dollars of their own. This means if we fully exercise the Haddon match we will have raised $37,500 for Mining!

In 2024, the year of our 150th anniversary, we will celebrate Colorado School of Mines’ past, present and possibilities. By celebrating and supporting the Campaign for MINES@150 you will help elevate Mines to be an accessible, top-of-mind and first-choice for students, faculty, staff, recruiters and other external partners. The Mining department’s goals for Mines@150 include upgrading facilities, scholarships, and continuing to build on student experiences both in the classroom and out in the field. When you give, you are ensuring Mines becomes even more distinctive and highly sought-after by future students, alumni, industry, and government partners over the next 150 years. We look forward to celebrating Mines’ sesquicentennial with you and recognizing the key role you play in making the MINES@150 vision a reality through your investments of time, talent and treasure.
