Community

The Minnesota Vikings strongly believe in supporting charitable organizations throughout Minnesota and the five-state Vikings region. Due to the high volume of requests for team memorabilia, game tickets and player appearances, the Vikings have established the following guidelines for consideration.

REQUEST ELIGIBILITY

• 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations located in the five-state Vikings region (Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin).

• Organizations that support or benefit youth football, underserved children and their families, medically-related causes or educational initiatives.

• Individuals who are hosting fundraising events to benefit an individual or family member affected by a serious medical condition.

• Requests must be for fundraising purposes only (ex. raffle, silent or live auction).

• Requests must be received at least four (4) weeks in advance of the event.

• Requests related to the following are INELIGIBLE:
   • Awards, prizes or incentive programs.
   • Requests for operating expenses or monetary donations.
   • Individuals or individual pursuits, fraternal, labor or political groups.
   • Third-party fundraising requests or campaigns (i.e. United Way, Courage Center, walks or runs) as the Vikings already support such groups as an organization.

REQUEST RESTRICTIONS

• Due to a high ticket demand and a low number of regular season games, game tickets will not be provided as a donation.

• The Vikings cannot accept items to be autographed by players.

• Player appearances are not available through this donation application process. Please click here for more info on Player, Coach and Alumni appearances.
