Very sweet. Too bad there isn't a shirt to wear if you are in a Gold section on Saturday.

😄 I have many gold Gopher shirts, zip ups, and sweat shirts. But we’ll be in a Maroon section 🙌

Wow! That is amazing... the gear is great, but the pregame stuff is priceless!

Just curious, how much do you have to donate to the program for the free stuff?
TBH, I don’t even know if they have a threshold. I’ve been donating to the program for 10+ years but just recently joined GGF and formed a long term donation schedule to our football program.

Honestly, I wouldn't be shocked if it's the long term donation schedule, and not the actual amount, that is getting you all the praise from the GGF, but who knows.

That car in your profile picture leads me to suspect you have more than a little bit of extra money burning a hole in your wallet :p

So good!! Golden Gopher Fund is just an amazing organization taking care of their alum donors!

Duffle bag
Caps x 2
T-shirt’s x 2
Zip up x 2

And a special THANK YOU card! What is written in the card is what MIND BLOWING! Can’t wait!

Great gift! At Gold Country that would be about two grand!

We realize it takes big donors to create big programs. Thanks for helping to make the Golden Gophers elite. Hope this thread gave you some joy (I know it did to a lot of us). I am sure your donation is helping to make our team better. Thanks!!
I'll echo this. Right now my "donations" to the U are in the form of tuition for my daughter.

It’s just one of those concept kits you put on an old Volkswagon!

Just kidding! 🤣

Thank you for the strong program support. The only way I am getting into that locker room is vicariously, so keep the info coming.

So the director to Golden Gopher Fund (GGF) organization texted me today to tell me that he’ll be shipping me something so BOLO for an UPS package! I thought he was shipping me my Purdue game tickets and parking pass, but he said what he is shipping me today is “more fun”. I then received an email from UPS notification with tracking info and it said the package is “5 lbs”!? I’m excited to see what I’ll be getting? I’m hoping for a signed helmet? An iron Goldy paper weight? I received a custom wood carved Gopher RTB clock couple of months back also as a surprised. Love that GGF is giving us donors these cool unique Gopher gifts. I will be getting this 5-pounder next week so I’ll keep y’all updated.

In the mean time, any guesses on what this 5-pounder thing will be?

I never expect gifts or VIP treatment when I donate. But donate through GGF and the VIP experiences that it provided me thus far is really at another level. My first pregame on the sideline was tOSU game last year and my family and I got to hang with Rashod and Gable.

The U gave me my educational foundation to get where I am today. If I some extra fund to donate, then why not help out my alma mater’s football program.

When I first donated to the U, I contributed to a CBS (College of Biological Sciences) fund since that was the college at the U where my degree was from. Not until Fleck showed up, I decided to switch all of my donation money to the football program.

Finding the GGF and decide to participate with it is truly rewarding.

NEVER met coach in person, NEVER been in our locker room (especially pregame to hear coach pep talk), I’m just beside myself to be able to share this with my wife & son for this experience.

If y’all see a crazy Asian screaming and crying in our locker room during Coach’s pregame speech anywhere on social media, it’s not me. 🤷🏻‍♂️
