Purpose 

Since its establishment in 1991, the SME Foundation has substantially benefited from the support of generous donors. This distinction was created to recognize lifetime donors who have contributed to the Foundation.  

Each year new contributors are recognized in Mining Engineering and honored at a special ceremony at the SME Annual Conference. We sincerely thank them for selecting the SME Foundation as their cause to champion.
