Employee Relief Fund

This campaign ended on July 01, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Colorado School of Mines by clicking here!

Rise up, Mines!

Mines employees support each other when they need it most.

The Employee Relief Fund will provide just-in-time assistance for Mines employees experiencing financial hardship such as household loss of income, an unhealthy living situation, effects from a natural disaster, or impacts felt from an unprecedented circumstance like the COVID-19 pandemic.

Your gift will provide immediate resources to cover an employee's critical expenses that may not otherwise be met under existing employee assistance programs, including:

  • Rent, utilities or other critical living expenses to help make ends meet, assist with a necessary transition or move out of an unhealthy living situation
  • Funding for clothing or basic essentials for someone who lost housing to a fire, flood, natural disaster or other emergency
  • Grocery money or a campus meal plan for an employee struggling to pay for basic needs
  • Assistance with medical bills from a sudden, unanticipated or unique situation
  • Travel and transportation expenses to attend a family member's funeral or assist their family during a time of need

Thank you for providing a lifeline for your colleagues in crisis.

If you are a member of the Mines campus community in need of financial assistance, please visit the Human Resources website to explore available resources. As of 5/1/2020, the Employee Relief Fund review committee is working to develop the application. Once funds are made available and the request form is finalized, a formal announcement will be made to campus and a link will be added to the above website.

Gifts made to this campaign will be placed in the Employee Relief Fund current-use account, making funds immediately available for Mines employees experiencing a crisis.

Did you know that your gift to Mines might qualify for up to a $300 charitable tax deduction under the new CARES Act?
