Digger Drive 2016

The Montana Tech Foundation is hosting our very first Digger Drive!  We are asking all alumni, faculty, staff and friends to make an online donation to Montana Tech and make 2016 our biggest donor year yet. You have the option to make an unrestricted gift to our Impact for Excellence fund that will support areas of greatest need or you can designate your gift to a specific department, scholarship, or fund.

How does the Montana Tech Foundation support Montana Tech?

If you believe in the mission of Montana Tech and appreciate the value of the education offered, making a gift gives you the opportunity to be part of the solution.

Every donation matters, no matter the size.  Thanks to our donors, in 2016 the Montana Tech Foundation has been able to provide $1,538,636 in scholarships and awards to recipients, $574,091 in departmental essentials, $415,052 in professorships, and $2,496,379 for facilities and equipment that advance Montana Tech.
