Gonzaga University Athletic Department Policy and Procedures Regarding Autographs

2017-18 men's and women's basketballs are now sold out.

The Gonzaga Athletic Department will have a limited number of autographed basketballs signed by the men's and women's basketball teams (balls are signed by one team only) for use in charitable fundraising events within the Spokane metro area and the state of Washington. Please carefully read the instructions below as all autograph requests must comply with these guidelines. Furthermore, recipients of an autographed basketball agree to abide by the conditions outlined here.

a) Autograph requests may be submitted via email to compliance@gonzaga.edu or fax to 509-313-5787. Each autograph request must include the following:

b) Autograph requests will be reviewed in the order received, and organizations will be notified of the outcome of their request via email. Once a request is approved, the organization will pay $50 to cover the cost of the basketball. Instructions regarding payment will be provided upon autograph request approval. Please do not submit money with your initial request. 

c) All request forms must be received by the Gonzaga Compliance Office at least three weeks prior to the event.

d) Submission of an autograph request does not guarantee that an organization will receive an autographed basketball as we have a limited number of balls each year.

e) These basketballs may not be resold in any fashion except for fund-raising by a non-profit, charitable, or educational organization. 

f) Due to NCAA rules, Gonzaga University cannot approve requests from organizations/fundraisers that benefit or support only high school-aged students. 

g) We limit our donations to local/state/regional requests. Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to help every organization that requests an autographed ball. 

h) Only one autographed men's basketball and women's basketball per organization per year will be provided. Receipt of an autographed ball in previous years does not guarantee subsequent donations.

i) Due to NCAA rules, Gonzaga Athletics cannot donate an autographed basketball to a commercial entity. Gonzaga Athletics is also prohibited from providing any item to a charitable organization/event that is sponsored or cosponsored by a commercial entity.

j) The Gonzaga University Athletic Department is not able to accept PERSONAL items or requests (through mail, email, phone request, or a visit to the athletic department), such as a T-shirt, ball, magazine, letter, etc. to be autographed by members of the team or coaching staff. Due to the volume and frequency of requests, and specific NCAA regulations Gonzaga Athletics cannot accept items to be autographed. Any item received by the Athletic department (via mail or hand-delivery) will be returned unsigned.
