Detroit Lions Autographed Memorabilia Requests

The Detroit Lions are committed to supporting organizations working to build stronger, more vibrant and thriving communities. Our impact has been possible because of our committed coaches, players—current and former, cheerleaders, families and fans working alongside us to strengthen communities. This page is intended for Michigan charitable, educational, or civic nonprofit organizations to request autographed memorabilia (not tickets) to enhance their program or event. Requests from organizations that align with the Detroit Lions Community Relations Pillars – Cancer Awareness, Military Service, Social Justice, Youth Development, and Women in Football – will be prioritized. Please submit only ONE (1) request per event.Submission of an application does not guarantee a donation.

Please read the requirements below before submitting a request:

  • Organizations must be located in the state of Michigan.
  • Organizations must have a valid 501(c)(3) IRS designation and provide a valid Tax ID number.
  • Please Note: We process all Tax ID numbers prior to considerations.
  • Donations will only be made directly to non-profit organizations. Third-party fundraisers benefitting a 501(c)(3) organization are not permitted.
  • Requests must be submitted at least SIX (6) WEEKS prior to the event date.
  • Donation shipments are fulfilled biweekly on Thursdays. Please plan accordingly.
  • Requests are only accepted on this online platform. No requests will be accepted via phone, email, or mail service.
