One Big Week
Many schools. One Goal.

Endless opportunities for our students.

OneBigWeek is a collaboration between the University of Minnesota and our fellow Big Ten institutions to celebrate the collective impact of our alumni and donors on the student experience. Our goal is to raise support for student scholarships and support programs, and in doing so, do our part to expand access to the Big Ten institutions.

From August 31 – September 7, join your Gopher community and support students at the University of Minnesota. Donations to student scholarships are always important. Additionally, this year we’re encouraging our Gophers to make an impact in two specific areas: our on-campus student food pantry and our research center for women and girls in sport.

We have two exciting challenges lined up for this week, as well as fun theme days that we'll be sharing via social media. Let's show the Big Ten, and the nation, just how powerful our alumni and donor community can be!

Every contribution, small or large, makes a B1G difference for our campus and community.

Girls & Women in Sport $5,000 Match Challenge

August 31 - September 7
Double your impact this week only!

A gracious donor has offered to match up to $5,000 for gifts to the Tucker Center Title IX Legacy Scholar Fund. This means your gift will go twice as far towards supporting research for girls and women in sport, and other gender equity initiatives.
