Private contributions in support of Colorado School of Mines have made a real difference in the lives of students, faculty, alumni and friends of the university.

    We want to hear more about how private gifts make an impact within the Mines community, and about what motivates donors to give to Mines.

    • Are you a donor who has a story to share about why you choose to support Colorado School of Mines?
    • Are you a current student or an alum who has benefited from the private support provided by others through scholarships or fellowships?
    • Has the quality of your educational experience been enhanced by new equipment or facilities, or by unique opportunities like study abroad or conference travel?
    We would love to hear from you. Please submit your story by emailing and let us know how to reach you to follow up. We may use your story on our website and/or in print materials to help demonstrate the impact of private philanthropy for Colorado School of Mines.

    Thank you for sharing your story!
