Farmers built Minnesota. The University of Minnesota understands the value farmers provide for our state. The U of M’s Ag program is among the best in the nation and has prepared thousands of graduates to carry on our state’s agrarian tradition.
Minnesota farmers and the University have been partners in supporting Minnesota for more than 150 years. Gopher Grown is the latest chance for us to work together, a simple way to donate commodities that benefit both Minnesota farmers and Gopher Athletics.
Donating commodities offers unique benefits to farmers. For example, these gifts may reduce your taxable income while improving your Gopher Score.
Gifts to Gopher Grown make a difference in the lives of Gopher student-athletes, helping them achieve greatness in the classroom, in competition, and later in life. For more information about this initiative and how you can help grow the future of Gopher Athletics, please contact the Golden Gopher Fund at 612-626-4653
