Giving Opportunities

Gift in Kind

Gift-in-Kind (GIK) allows businesses to donate goods, products, and services to Lobo Athletics through the UNM Lobo Club. GIK donations include the following: food, hotels, vehicles, equipment, and other diverse needs of the Athletics Department. The GIK program allows local businesses to donate these various items in lieu of an annual cash donation and become eligible for ticket and parking benefits. GIK donations may be declined if it's a product, good, or service that the athletic department does not have a want/need for.

We hope you will consider being a partner with Lobo Athletics.

We truly believe that this partnership is a win-win situation for your business, Lobo Athletics, and the Albuquerque community.

For more information about the Gift In Kind Program, Contact the Lobo Club: | 505-925-2582.

  • Opportunity to purchase season tickets for Lobo Athletics.
  • Priority seating at certain levels of support
