Investments & Performance

The Impact of Your Support

Many alumni, friends and corporation gifts help to provide outstanding educational opportunities for our students. This support helps to fill the gap between institutional needs and state appropriated funding. Because of your participation, the future of SD Mines looks bright.

Investment Objectives

The SD Mines Foundation assets are being closely monitored with moderate growth and management of risk as primary goals. Investment returns are sought from both market appreciation and from dividends and interest. The portfolio is diversified between fixed income and equity holdings. The objective is to provide a predictable stream of income while allowing the growth of the principal to meet or outpace the rate of inflation. An appointed Investment Committee oversees our professional management team.
