Montana Tech (then the Montana State School of Mines) opened its doors to our first 39 students on the 11th of September 1900 with one building (Main Hall) and two degrees (Mining Engineering and Electrical Engineering). It was our DayOne. Now, over 100 years later, we boast two growing campuses between Montana Tech and Highlands College and offer over 60 degrees.
To celebrate our history and our growth, we plan to hold our third annual digital fundraising event DayOne on the 11th and 12th of September. The goal is to bring together our Montana Tech community, to share what is happening on our campuses, and raise funds for our departments and programs in focused areas.
During DayOne we are offering three unique giving incentives only available during a special match window. See details below:
DayOne Departmental Challenge - Total match dollars $20,000
- Departments will go head-to-head for a chance to earn extra money towards their department by bringing in the most individual donors to their project. The top ten finishers split the pot, valued at up to $20,000, ranging from $5,000 for the top finisher to $500 for 10th place. Match opportunity will be available from 6am September 11th, 2019 through 12pm September 12th, 2019.
First Time & Student Donor Match - Total match dollars $10,000
- First time or student donors will be matched 1:1 for each dollar given up to a total of $10,000. That means your gift of $50 actually has the impact of $100. To take advantage of this matching opportunity make sure to answer yes to being either a first time donor or a currently enrolled Montana Tech student on the giving form. Matching opportunity will be available from 6am September 11th, 2019 through 12pm September 12th, 2019 or sooner if the $10,000 match has been met.
Faculty/Staff Giving Drive - Total match dollars $10,000
- When a faculty or staff member gives during DayOne their gift will be matched 1:1. To take advantage of this matching opportunity make sure to answer yes to being either a Montana Tech faculty or staff member on the giving form. Matching opportunity will be available from 6am September 11th, 2019 through 12pm September 12th, 2019 or sooner if the $10,000 match has been met .
Project details are being finalized and will be shared soon, in the meantime make sure to sign up to be an Ambassador for this year's DayOne!
