Engagement Opportunities with Coaches & Student Athletes
Family Fun Events
Customized to You
In previous years, individuals who donated through the Golden Gopher Fund received a pre-assigned set of benefits. In this new program, everyone with a Gopher Score will have access to a menu of benefit options, ranging from invitations to special Gopher Athletics events, discounts on purchases, engagement opportunities with coaches and student-athletes, and much more.“Each fan is unique. They have different reasons why they’re a part of Gopher Athletics. We recognize that fans have different needs and wants. That’s what’s so great about this program – every fan can customize it to include what they want. It’s a program made for our fans, dedicated to our fans, and committed to improving their experience with Gopher Athletics.” — Mark Coyle, Director of Athletics
Inclusive to All
The new Gopher Loyalty Program is a departure from the previous way in which benefits have been allocated to Gopher supporters. This new program will include everyone who has a Gopher Score – all donors and all season ticket holders to any Gopher sport. Starting a Gopher Score is as easy as making an annual gift of $10 to the Golden Gopher Fund.

Unique to Minnesota
The new Gopher Loyalty Program will provide a customized experience enabling Gopher fans to select the benefits most important to them – a first among NCAA Institutions. The program moves away from a one-size-fits-all approach and instead offers fans the ability to opt-in to engagement and benefits that excite them. Like many other departments around the country, Minnesota had previously outlined different benefit levels for only its donors, levels that aligned annual giving totals to pre-assigned stewardship opportunities. This new program will allow Gopher fans to select their benefits and customize their engagement with Gopher Athletics. The number of choices will be determined by an individual’s Gopher Score.
Access to purchasing parking and complimentary club room passes will remain unchanged and will continue to be provided to fans based on annual fund contributions. Learn more about parking and club room passes
