Donation Request Policy

The University Of Minnesota Department of Intercollegiate Athletics receives hundreds of donation requests from a variety of organizations, fundraisers, 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:
