Donation Requests

Donation and Appearance Requests


The Minnesota Swarm receives numerous requests for memorabilia, player appearances, and speaking engagements from organizations each month. We wish it were possible to honor all of them since most are very worthwhile causes. Please know that all requests are given serious consideration. Due to the high volume of requests we receive, the following guidelines must be followed to assure fairness.

The Minnesota Swarm focuses its efforts on assisting organizations that benefit youth lacrosse, disadvantaged youth, children’s medical related causes and youth educational programs. 

Please do not call to check on the status of a donation.  If you have questions regarding your donation or the donation process please send and email to eklingner@mnswarm.com.
