Go Gophers!

The University Of Minnesota Department of Intercollegiate Athletics receives hundreds of donation requests from a variety of organizations, fund raisers, schools and individuals.  We wish it were possible to honor each and every one of them, since all are very worthwhile causes.  Please know that all requests are given serious consideration.  Due to the high volume of requests we receive, the following are guidelines to be followed:

Every request must be accompanied by a completed “Donation Request” form. 

You may send the request via e-mail to:  lindq010@umn.edu or to:
                           University of Minnesota
                           Donation Requests
                           Attn:  David M. Lindquist
                           600 15th Avenue SE
                           Room 252
                           Minneapolis, MN  55455
                           Phone:  612-626-2086
                           Fax:  612-625-9870

We require, along with the donation request form, a formal donation request letter submitted in writing on organizational letterhead.  Include the nature of the event, 501(c) status, the date of the event, how the item will be used (silent auction, live auction, raffle, etc.).

Guidelines

The following are guidelines, for the donation request:

  • You will be notified, in writing, of our decision.  Due to the high volume of requests, we ask that you not follow up, on your request.
  • The University Of Minnesota cannot donate to any cause that directly/indirectly benefits a person it grades 9-12.

  • The University Of Minnesota does not honor requests for operating expenses and other monetary donations.
  • Coach’s autographs are subject to coach’s availability and require the requesting party to provide the item for autograph.  However, for a fee, the departments will provide the autographed item.
  • Tickets are subject to availability and only one (1) pair will be donated, when granted.
  • The requesting party will be required to make arrangements to drop off/pick up donated item.
