Rise Up for Mines: Employee Relief Fund

This campaign ended on July 01, 2021, but you can still make a gift to Colorado School of Mines by clicking here!

Rise up, Mines!

Mines faculty and staff employees support each other when they need it most.

The Employee Relief Fund will provide just-in-time assistance for Mines faculty and staff 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.
